"Review: Sibylle Peretti:It Was Such A Beautiful Promise"
"Promise and Perception: The Enchanting Landscapes of Sibylle Peretti" Solo Exhibition at the Chrysler Museum of Art
March 15, 2018
March 15th - September 19th, 2018
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. She invites us into her dream-like world to observe a child playing on the river bank or a sleeping fox as they exist in their enchanted landscapes. Here in these magical environments, we can contemplate our connection to nature and perhaps will uncover the secrets of coexistence.
