Larry Bamburg experiments with elements of the natural world, resulting in his sculptural works. His process is rooted in discovery — he often establishes an end goal and then works backwards in figuring how it can be realized. Bamburg’s artist talk with Leslie Waggoner Professor in Sculpture Amy Hauft will delve into his current exhibition installed at the Visual Arts Center, BurlsHoovesandShells on a Pedestal of Conglomerates. The exhibition will be on view until Dec. 9, 2017 with open gallery hours directly before the talk.
Larry Bamburg earned a BFA in Painting and Metalsmithing from Texas Tech University and an MFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

He was a recent artist in residence at San Antonio’s Artpace. He currently has a large scale outdoor project on display through March 2018 on New York City’s High Line titled Avian Bird’s-Eye Burl Perch Camera Trap: hinged, galvanized and grounded. He is represented by Simone Subal Gallery in NYC.
