About the Artist

"My work is largely about transformation. I believe that there is the potential for great beauty in change. My intent is to capture that edge of transformation and the liminal space between what is and what is yet to be. In that moment, all things are still possible, including great beauty and wonder and joy."

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.
