Figurines of Fun

Barnaby Barford cuts up china figurines and rearranges them in amusing ways. Shary Boyle's art is similar, but darker.

Some of both could be considered mildly NSFW.

I saw Shary Boyle do the "live projection" thing on that Will Oldham tour, and it was pretty damn great. Sounds sort of pretentious, but its almost like hand-made live animation. Loved it.

Boyle's work is interesting. Thanks for this, WPW.

Barford's captions-as-titles is weak, but I die that I can't have Boyle's collection. She's a genius.

I really enjoyed the production pieces as well. Thanks for the link.

The American ceramic artist Paul McMullan has a similar interest in the possibilities of cut-up and pop culture that springs from the vast variety of readymade ceramic molds out there. I liked both the artists here. I think Paul adds to the conversation a tremendous sense of color and a great sense of experimentation - I like the way the colors and drawings in Paul's work cross from one readymade form to the next such that it (color and line) becomes a separate, contrasting and complimentary element to the sculptural form.

Nice links! Thanks!
