澳大利亚艺术家Stephen Bird的彩绘陶瓷作品看上去像是18-19世纪北英格兰陶瓷重镇Stoke-on-Tent出产的陶瓷作品的再诠释,融汇当代流行文化、战争、包里、政治和宗教等元素,以荒诞幽默的方式来表达爱、生与死以及生活等主题。

Stephen Bird’s modelled and painted ceramic works appear to reinterpret eighteenth- and nineteenth-century ceramic wares which were mass-produced in factories in Stoke-on-Trent, in the English Midlands. But the subjects are subversive: investigations of contemporary suburban life, popular culture, war, violence, politics and religion, within universal themes of love, death, birth and life.
