Barnaby Barford
British, b. 1977
Follow

In his distinctive ceramics practice, Barnaby Barford begins by finding mass-market and antique porcelain figurines, and then alters them by removing and adding elements, and by repainting them. The anachronistic results are humorous, critical snapshots of contemporary culture in the form of kitschy readymades that walk the line between art and craft: a figure of a Victorian-esque boy in rags wolfs down a Big Mac; two well-to-do ladies in hoop skirts and hats consort over bottles of Jameson whiskey and frosty mugs of beer; Little Bo-Peep points a revolver at a pair of mice.
