Since 1997, Barry X Ball has adapted innovative technologies and traditional techniques to make carefully honed sculptures in semi-precious stones—rarely used due to their difficulty to carve and lack of consistency—that push the physical and conceptual boundaries of sculpture. The artist reinvents traditional sculptural formats and existing art historical landmarks using state-of-the-art, 3D scanning technology, computer-aided modeling software, and CNC milling machines, in combination with centuries-old craft techniques requiring thousands of hours of detailed handwork. Barry X Ball: Remaking Sculpture is the artist’s first major U.S. museum survey.
