Sibylle Peretti Artist Talk

Artist Sibylle Peretti talks about her 2016 residency at Bullseye Studio in Portland, sharing information on her background and explaining "what's going on behind and beneath the glass" and why she chose this material to translate her ideas.

"In my work I always try to capture feelings and emotions and I'm interested in art which somehow reflects our emotional existence," she says. "It's about confronting myself with the unknown to create intimate spaces to reflect on loss, hope, and memory."
