FROM THE ARTIST

Trained in fine arts, now recognized as a sculptor of glass, I am not interested in glass per se. It is only one medium that conveys my thoughts, embodies my visions. I work with space, time, light. Sometimes I do collages, photography, film. Sometimes I design small sculptural forms like jewelry. The latter I like passionately.

Sometimes I write. Sometimes I design interiors—just for my proper, artistic hygiene.

I believe that architecture is a crown for art, sound and silence, light and dark, not mere brick and steel. Architecture and art are strongly connected: Fine arts do not decorate architecture; architecture is not a shell for fine arts. They are an integral part of each other, and this relationship interests me, as do monumental forms. I develop my thoughts via a unique technique known as Anna Skibska Technique. I have developed the technique and it serves me well: I like to wrap space, embrace time, and trap light, working on them simultaneously from the same beginning.
