This autumn Anita Ford and Alfred Huckett will be exhibiting
together for the first time. Focussing on miscommunications,
undisclosed secrets and a quiet monster, they have put to-

which though often dark are not without a sense of humour.

Ford has spent most of her working life as a successful printmaker, selling
her work to the corporate sector. Five years ago she decided to shift direction
embracing mixed media processes to create work based on highly personal
experiences related to hearing loss and cancer, unfortunately part of her life.
She confronts her misfortunes head-on, challenging her situation with a mix-
ture of displeasure, indignation and a large dose of grim humour.

Huckett is primarily known as an artist concerned with the portrayal of music,
having been artist in residence at the York Early Music Festival on three oc-
casions. He is now looking back to his early training in theatre design at Cen-
tral St Martins with a collection of unshown work made in the 90s, together
with recent large scale canvasses confronting and exploring his feelings and
experiences as a transvestite.
