T Barny has been creating sculpture professionally for over 30 years. He studied at both Stanford and Brown Universities, and was graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design. Abstraction is his fascination, and power tools are his forte. All materials have artistic promise in them and T Barny has worked with every type; hot glass, neon gas, bronze, wood, water, steel, and stone. From one foot high tabletop sculptures to twelve-foot tall corporate monoliths, T Barny releases inherent forms out of material from all over the world.
The natural forms & geometric shapes that science creates are reflected in T Barny's work. His goal is to create works that reflect the magic and wonder in our world. Known for his seashell-like, Mobius forms, T Barny works often provoke the response, 'how does he do that?'
During his career, T Barny has worked as Artist-In Residence at art centers in Woodstock, New York, Texas, Tinos, Greece, and Carrara, Italy. He has thought stone carving in California, Vermont, and New Mexico. As a full-time sculptor, T Barny must market and distribute his work as well as create it. His work has been shown in over 80 different galleries worldwide and he has participated in over 300 group and individual exhibitions.
