We're hoping he'll grow out of it by Barnaby Barford, porcelain, music box, enamel paint, 2007 - click to enlarge
From this weekend onwards, Barnaby Barford (previously featured here and here and of course here) will be showing works from his Love Is... series at David Gill Galleries in London who weren't helpful with sending me image material or providing any other information like opening times and such so I'm afraid I'll have to leave you with the above image from a couple of years back.
But be prepared to see sugar rush-inducing kitsch porcellana forsho.
The exhibition remains on show until the end of June.
On show: Mar 27 - Jun 30, 2011
Address: David Gill Galleries, 3 Loughborough Street, London SW11, UK, tel: +44 (0) 207 793 1100

Happy Meal (detail) by Barnaby Barford, 2009 - click for details/larger view
One of the great things about living in London is being surrounded by great art and galleries that dare to put on exhibitions with a twisted sense of humour.
Spring Projects is a gallery in an amazing industrial complex just behind the railway tracks in Kentish Town.
It opened only a year ago, but the current Barnaby Barford (previously featured here and here) exhibition shows that Spring has
great a very refined bad taste and hopefully a long and healthy future as a gallery.

Oh, and their staff is simply irresistible and their no-bullshit approach to contemporary art could teach many galleries a lesson.

On show: February 27 - April 5, 2009
