Spring Projects latest exhibition features artists Barnaby Barford and Alice Hawkins. The artists link their work at Spring Projects through seeking uncelebrated subjects and objects, which are often overlooked, and remodeling them. Barnaby says “I think the show represents the hopes and aspirations of the individual characters within all the work, whether they are, or want to portray themselves as good, or bad or beautiful”.

In particular I’m a fan of Barnaby Barford who works with ceramics to create unique narrative pieces. Although an accomplished craftsman, Barford primarily selects found objects, taking both mass-manufactured and antique figurines and turning them into sinister, sardonic but invariably humorous sculptures. Shown above:
