Anna Skibska uses clear glass in a darkened room to create a dramatic environment, uncovering fresh meaning through the variable of light and the angle of viewing. With her room-size installations, Skibska’s sculptures exude lightness within mass—they are both line and form, strong and delicate, enormous and elusive. In celebration of the duality of life, fragility is combined with fearsome scale that guides visitors through her glass environment. Dreamlike tales of forests and space connect to the human spirit through dimension and physical presence, creating a magical experience unveiled through the mystery of light within glass.

Anna Skibska studied at the Academy of Art in Wroclaw, Poland. Skibska says, “I wrap space, embrace time and space, and trap light…Glass is merely a vehicle to carry light and shadows in a darkened space.” Skibska has received numerous awards and grants over the years, including the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2002.
