New Hands on Old World Flowers

Solo exhibition at Big Medium in Austin, TX July 15-August 13, 2016 curated by Kevin McNamee-Tweed. The video Recuerdos was made with Brenda Cruz-Wolf, and the ceramic pieces with Jessica Ninci. The book Poemas Galegos was published by The Center for Imaginative Cartography and Research.

“Originally from Florida, Lauren Moya Ford grew up in Texas and recently moved to the city of Vigo in Galicia, the northwest region of Spain. Her exhibition New Hands on Old World Flowers is a comprehensive record and thoughtful reflection of her time spent in Spain. Her experiences there manifest themselves in the form of paintings, drawings, video, books, ceramics, quilts, and even performance. Ford’s book Passage reads like a travel journal—a series of observations that casually transform into poetic recollections, much like the exhibition as a whole.”
