Title: Billary
Artist: Russell Biles
Satiral, gaudy; the work of Russell Biles has as much in common with a cheap souvenir as a sculptural artefact — levelling culture to take even swipes at celebrity, religion and politics. ‘Billary' riffs on the inseparable identity of the clintons, the slip cast figure literally joining the two as a totemic icon (traditionally emblematic of a specific tribe) hilst simultaneously suggesting that one is forever wearing the other as a token of identification.
Title: Binetsu
Artist: Doi Yosuke
The running, vaporous form ‘Binetsu’ surmounts the limits of clay, Yosuke’s technical skill in hand-joining and connecting a series of puffy subdivisions finds a larger, more overarching biomorphic presence that gently rises and curls. The soft texture and simple white unglazed finish allow a calmness and rich interplay of shadow and definition upon the surface, and small organic apertures are encouraged or punctured through the shape to develop the sense of interaction in positive and negative space at different angles.

Title: Bird Crackleware Vase
Artist: Boch Freres Keramis
Title: Bird in the Man Tree Man
Artist: Jack Earl
Earl’s hand-built ceramics concentrate on descriptive scenario, utilising landscape or building as an environment for laying out a storyline. Often focused on a recurring character named “Bill” and a likeness of rural Americana, Earl juxtaposes scenes with the romance and highly wrought fantasy of rococo porcelain, balancing folkiness with a sensual grandeur in a manner that often seems faintly surreal. The three-dimensional complexity of this work is typical

Title: Bites Will Not Trust Like Tough Love
Artist: Kukuli Velarde
Peruvian Kukuli Velarde makes work indebted to folk tradition and traditional ornamentation, exploring the new politics of identity, estrangements of context and acts of “forgetfulness” that occur as art is displaced from its origin. ‘Bites. Will Not Trust. Like Tough Love’ reveals itself as awakened in its situation, the mythic figure of half-bull, half-man caught uncertain, pulled from privacy, in its beautifully lifelike visage. The artist projects her own image onto the creature with the use of a head cast to reclaim the objects identity, and inherits and absorbs the (racially motivated) belittling title that reflects ongoing derogatory behaviour towards Latin America and its women.
Title: Black Balloon Head
Artist: Ilona Romule
Title: Black Basalt Bust of Locke
Artist: Wedgwood & Bentley
Wedgwood & Bentley Black Basalt Bust of Locke, England, c. 1780, modeled with a stovepipe back and mounted atop a waisted circular socle, impressed title and mark Library bust of the philosopher, leading member of the Enlightenment movement, and “father of liberalism” John Locke — completed by Wedgwood & Bentley in Wedgwood Black Basalt stoneware circa 1780. The bust, mounted atop a waisted circular socle, faces downwards so as to be placed upon a high pedestal.
