About the artwork
de foin, meaning haystack, draws on inspiration from Ronnie Ford's childhood, in which he would spend countless hours lost in his fantastical world of nature. The vast field of hay is painted in the brilliance of colours, of yellow, orange and brown tones. Articulated marks are made on the canvas with vertical lines, signifying the marks left by farmers when they till the land. The authenticity and rawness of his most instinctive response to the hay field is recorded in this work, and convey a sense of deep-seated intimacy with his subject matter.
