Professional artist Birgit Piskor was born in the town of Calw, situated in the Black Forest region of Germany. At a young age, she immigrated to Victoria, British Columbia, on the west coast of Canada, where her studio and gallery are now located.
Known for her sensual organic forms, Piskor’s unique sculptural works are held in private collections both locally and internationally. Her work is steadily evolving – from gracefully arching female forms to striking geometric totems to large-scale abstract pieces. Each of Piskor’s original sculptures is individually hand built with exceptional attention to detail.
Piskor channels the industrial essence of concrete into shapes and textures that defy its inherent rigidity. The flowing organic concrete forms she produces are tactile expressions of transformation and visceral moments of beauty.
