Artist’s Statement

Edwin Forrest Ward

I am a folk artist. Self-taught. My watercolor inks on Arches Papier are created with what Navajo rug weavers call eye dazzlers in mind, meaning my imagery is meant to work, first and foremost, on a visual level. I like to think my imagery at least squiggles if not dazzles. In fact, some artist friends have characterized my work as squiggle-ism, a most modern distant cousin of pointillism. I'd agree. Because I believe the experience of art should be gratifying and burden-less (as opposed to didactic or challenging or inflammatory), I attach no hidden, intellectual, moral or political agenda to my imagery. Bob Dylan once said: "It's for myself and my friends my stories are sung." Ditto for my watercolors.
