A native of California, with a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, T Barny has been creating sculpture professionally for over 38 years. During his career, T Barny has produced over 700 works in steel, bronze, wood and water but his fascination is with stone. He has carved 204 kinds of different rock, his work has been shown in over 100 galleries worldwide and has participated in more than 400 individual and group exhibitions. T Barny has been an Artist-in-Residence in locations such as Greece and Italy, though the majority of his work is done from his home studio in Healdsburg, California.
“I aspire to create sculptures that reflect a universe filled with magic and wonder. I have imported personally collected stone from quarries around the world for over 38 years, carving sculptures from massive blocks of calcite, alabaster, granite and marble. I allow myself to be guided by the natural rhythms of the stone.”
It is T Barny’s great love of stone as a medium that allows him to create evocative works that continue to grow in their market presence and are becoming increasingly sought after in both private and public collections.
