Barbara Korman

Barbara Korman - Magma Series VBarbara Korman is a visual artist, living and working in New York City where she maintains a sculpture studio for the design and production of three dimensional constructions and unique bronze castings. Korman describes her sculptures as personal landscapes, informed by Nature.

She travels from the United States National Parks to Nepal's Himalayas making photographic notations of the land's textures and formations for her future work. In the studio, she fabricates the bronze models from balsa wood and wax and is directly involved in the casting and metal finishing of each piece.

The MAGMA SERIES, celebrates the geology and evolution of the earth. The flow, compression, emergence and erosion of matter. MAGMA refers to the molten material beneath the solid crust of the earth, from which igneous rock is formed. A primordial process much like the casting of bronze.

Her award winning works have been exhibited in over one hundred solo and group shows in leading museums and galleries, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art , the Queens Museum, the Hudson River Museum and Tiffany and Company windows. Her sculptures are included in public and private collections throughout the world.

A graduate of New York City's High School of Music and Art, Korman earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Fine Arts at the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University.
