Angela Glajcar Germany

Born in 1970 in Mainz, Germany

Currently lives and works near Mainz, Germany

Karin Weber Gallery artist Angela Glajcar is a sculpture artist working in the mediums of paper and glass mesh. The artist hand tears small creations for residential clients and large-scale installations for public spaces.

Light and shadow to lend definition and bring form to her seemingly weightless, yet substantial compositions. When artificially lit, these sculptures take on new qualities as hand-torn sheets form a vortex-like structure that is dramatized in shadow.
