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 with her family to Victoria, British Columbia, on the west coast of Canada. They settled in the community of James Bay – just up the street from the home of iconic artist Emily Carr, where her studio and gallery are now located.
Known for her light, sensual, undulating forms, Birgit’s unique sculptural works are most commonly purchased internationally by art collectors and high-end interior designers. Her work is constantly evolving – from large-scale abstract pieces to fine objets d’art, each of Birgit Piskor’s pieces is individually created with exceptional attention to detail; no two pieces are alike.
Hardworking – and surprisingly strong for her small stature, Birgit channels the industrial essence of concrete into shapes and textures that defy the inherently rigid nature of the medium. The flowing organic concrete forms she produces are tactile expressions of transformation and visceral moments of beauty. Each handcrafted sculpture is constructed of only the highest quality materials that are both attractive to the eye and built to withstand the passage of time.
Drawing inspiration from her extensive travels throughout Europe, Central America, Japan, and the Middle East, Birgit freezes fluid motion into concrete, evoking a unique emotion with each form.
