Artist Jonathan Baldock (b. 1980) makes theatrical and darkly humorous sculptural busts, which are often influenced by traditions of folklore and ritual. At times sinister and unattractive, and often socially scathing, Baldock’s heads look at the nature of beauty and celebrity memorialising his fictional deities with elaborate hair styles and costumes. Choosing sour dough for his modeling material he mocks the more established classical ideals of portraiture and takes on neglected notions associated with fantasy and myth. The sculptor lives and works in London.
