Gordon Onslow Ford: A Surrealist Exploring the Inner Worlds

Weinstein Gallery, 444 Clementina Street, San Francisco, 94103, Admission Free

with Fariba Bogzaran

Gordon Onslow Ford was one of the last surviving members of the 1930s Paris surrealist group surrounding André Breton. Born in the English town of Wendover in 1912 to a family of artists, Onslow Ford began painting at an early age. His grandfather, Edward Onslow Ford, was a Victorian sculptor. In his lifetime, Gordon Onslow Ford cofounded, together with Robert Anthoine and Fariba Bogzaran, The Lucid Art Foundation. The mission of the Lucid Art Foundation is to explore the phenomena of the inner worlds and deep levels of consciousness through visual arts, spontaneous painting, writings, and other means to make visible the otherwise invisible, creating an inclusive way of seeing that is in harmony with the natural world of which we are a part. This talk will explore Surrealism in its relation to consciousness expansion and the mapping of states of mind.

Fariba Bogzaran is the editor and contributing author of the new book:
