This is a lavishly illustrated exploration of master sculptor Barry X Ball's most important works. Barry X Ball's sculptures, although paying respectful homage to their historical antecedents, are completely original. Through the use of unconventional materials and innovative methods, the artist reinvigorates the age-old tradition of figurative stone sculpture. Ball employs an elaborate array of equipment and procedures to realize his works, ranging from the cutting edge to the traditional, from 3-D digital scanning, virtual modelling, and computer-controlled milling to hyper-detailed hand carving and polishing. With their simultaneous fever-pitch intensity and surreal stillness, Barry X Ball's bravura works make an expansive case for the reconsideration of contemporary sculptural practice.
