Birgit Piskor

+ About the Artist

Birgit Piskor was born in the town of Calw, situated in the Black Forest region of Germany, but immigrated to Victoria at a young age. A self-taught artist, her indoor-outdoor sculptures are inspired by the transformative power of concrete and its ability to “fulfill both the mundane requirements of civil engineers and the sublime vision of artists.” Piskor has an uncanny ability to channel concrete’s industrial function into sensual organic shapes and textures that defy its inherent rigidity and harken back to artistic forebears like Brancusi or Moore.
