Steven Ford and David Forlano
Forth & Back" is the result of a partnership between two artists states apart. Steven Ford in Philadelphia and David Forlano in Santa Fe work together separately by sending unfinished work forth and back between them. Both Ford and Forlano contribute to each piece. The result of this forth and back repetitive collaboration is colorful and texture-rich forms of polymer clay, silver, and gold. In "Forth & Back" this collaboration extends to prints where the artwork is refined and completed in travels between the two locations.

Ford and Forlano's statement about their work together:
Forth & Back
For the past 20 years our collaboration has been focused on wearable objects. This year, we started exchanging print/paintings that continue some of the same dynamic themes that are in our jewelry.We bring complementary qualities to our collaborative process. This method is like completing a puzzle; one that balances incongruent impulses.
