Barbara Gallucci is a New York based sculptor and photographer. She earned her M.F.A. at Yale University in 1987. Her work, ranging in scale from autonomous objects to large-scale installation, examines the intersections between sculpture, furniture and interior design.
She is also developing, what she calls, photo/sculpture hybrids; large scale photos are printed on canvas of iconic architecture; Frank LLoyd Wright's Fallingwater. The canvas photos are used as sculptural elements, combining with construction materials to create a staged environment, which speaks of the relationship between nature and the built world of structures. Her early photographic work was documentarian indexing of the prefab housing movement of the 1950s in America, including Levittown A-Frames.
