Title: All You Can Eat

Artist: Russell Biles

‘All You Can Eat’ seems at first to simply to characterise the familiar corporate clown of McDonalds, the hand on heart gesture a token of sentimentality for such cherished customers. Biles’ political ceramics are rarely so sympathetic though, and the inscription “McHeartAttack” carved and hidden at the base of the figure might reveal the real reason that Ronald’s eyes bulge.

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.
