Barry X Ball

Barry X Ball was born in 1955 in Pasadena, CA and lives and works in New York. He produces different kind of sculptures, some are portrait of models, which then are transformed by the needs of the artist other are ‘copies’ of ancient masterpieces by Antonio Corradini, even though Barry prefer to say that they are more perfect that the original works. The way he used mixed medias such as coloured onyxes from iran and different kind of marble its impressive. You can even see through the veil of the ‘purity’, a copy of ‘La purità’ from Corradini, kept in Cà Rezzonico, Venice.

    I love this portrayal of a historical art form – choosing ones that would usually be so pure is very adventurous
