Coddiwomple is an exhibition of drawings and paintings by conceptual artist James R Ford. Ford’s work addresses ideas of perception, absurdity and belief; looking at both the role of art and our relationship to it. The search for, and generation of, meaning in art and life is also important to his practice, along with the confusion this can lead to. 

Ford (b. 1980, UK) studied at Nottingham Trent University and then Goldsmiths College in England. He moved to New Zealand in 2009 and currently lives and works in Wellington. He has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand and internationally, and in 2013 was winner of the inaugural Tui McLauchlan Emerging Artist’s Award from the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.
