Petra Bittl


Petra Bittl`s creative output has its origins in the intensive relationship between sketching, painting and clay. The aesthetic integration of sculpture and image transcend the pure form of the object. An alloy of form and content is forged within the ceramic sculpture itself, its porcelain epidermis a surrogate for canvas or paper. Drawings and pictorial elements define the sculptural form and detail both content and meaning with facet-rich autonomous stylistic idiom in each sculptural object.
