Barry X Ball
American, b. 1955
Follow

Barry X Ball takes the forms and production methods of traditional sculpture and weds them to contemporary technologies. Ball uses the CNC milling technique, mostly on stone, to create replicable copies of famous artworks and portrait busts of contemporary artists such as Matthew Barney. By recreating iconic art-historical pieces such as Umberto Boccioni’s Unique Forms of Continuity in Space (1913), Ball strives to perfect the original, refine its various facets into a new material, and raise questions about casting and the role of authorship in sculpture.
