Gerry Forde

My paintings come from my own original photographs. Some of my influences include James Rosenquist, Peter Blake and Lucien Freud. I completed a BA in Illustration at Maidstone College Of Art during the mid 90’s and am also a qualified secondary school teacher of art and design since 2002. I have remained interested in recording selected compositions with considered use of colour. I am an artist who believes in finding ideas on my doorstep; my inspiration often comes from snapshots taken on early morning walks exploring with my dog but also during travels around the UK in my Austin mini and abroad, in the Mediterranean. I also look to 20th century graphic design and fashion for ideas. My objective is to trigger simple memories.
