Barnaby Barford

10 Jun

UK-based artist, Barnaby Barford, works primarily with ceramics to create unique narrative pieces. He works with both mass-market and antique found porcelain figurines, mashing-up and exchanging elements or adding to them and repainting them, to create sculptures which are sinister, sardonic and humorous. These pieces are from Barford’s series titled The Good The Bad The Belle. It explores ideas of lost youth in today’s society, focussing on the themes of eating habits, violence, education, gang culture and perceptions of childhood. Looking at Barford’s work makes me feel like my Grandma’s porecelain has been violated by Banksy.
