"Ghosts" series of portrait paintings by Gareth Ford Williams.
When we upload our images to the web we turn their subjects into ghosts.
These echo, repeat, are witnessed and stories develop around them. The composition uof each portrait is a mirror of a found 'ghost' from the web. These are then repainted and reimagined using the same techniques I have developed for my abstracts. The identity and context have gone but the echo remains.
ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, is an often misunderstood condition and my experience of it has shaped my art.
Like other neurodivergent conditions people with ADHD have different traits that affect the way they experience the world. We can find it difficult to filter out sight and sounds or have a single obsessive point of focus. However this can go from multiple input distractions to finding; colours, patterns, sounds or even thoughts so irresistible they cause hyperfocus.
I have spent years trying to work out what elements cause my hyperfocus, from an idea within Paul Klee’s Pedagogical Sketchbook to patterns, compositions, concepts, pallets, proximities and positions of colours within the composition as well as the theatricality of place in relation to their setting. These relationships are transposed into my own processes.
Instead of trying to supress a condition that is a fundamental part of my own cognitive makeup, I have learned instead to indulge my traits as part of my creative process, as such my painting is an embodiment and expression of my sensory and emotional experiences of the world.
Here is to wishes that everyone is enjoying their summer!
