Biography: Sibylle Peretti

Sibylle Peretti
Name: 
Sibylle Peretti

Sibylle Peretti was born in Germany where the rich tradition of glassmaking influenced the direction of her artistic training, and the abundant Bavarian forests inspired her choice of landscape as a predominant theme in her work. Using two-dimensional kiln-formed panels and three-dimensional lost-wax castings, Peretti composes narratives about the beautiful and poetic yet disrupted relationship between humans and the natural world. “I like to invite the viewer to journey into an unknown, undefined place of possibilities, mystery, and beauty were we find moments of clarity, solitude, and introspection,” said Peretti. She earned her MFA in Sculpture and Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Cologne, and a Master’s degree in Glassmaking and Design from the State School of Glass in Zwiesel, Germany. Her work has won numerous awards, including grants from the Pollock-Krasner and Joan Mitchell Foundations. Her work is represented in the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art, The Hunter Museum of American Art, The Speed Museum, The Montreal Museum of fine Arts, and The Corning Museum of Glass among others. She works and lives in both New Orleans and Cologne, Germany.
