In sculpting fluid and organic forms artist Barry Bunker creates his beautiful work. The artwork has a lyrical movement and a sense of humor. For many years the Knowles Gallery in La Jolla California represented Barry’s fine artwork.
Barry was lead sculptor at the San Diego Opera Scenic Studio, he worked there from the 1970s — 1990s. Master artist Davis West was an inspiration to us both. Barry and I worked there together carving scenery and painting backdrops and scrims for SDO and other Opera companies, we became friends. We also worked together at The Old Globe Theater in Balboa Park during the early 90s. Going on field trips to museums and nature hikes were some of our favorite things to do.
