Karin Weber Gallery is proud to introduce Scale Matters, an exclusively online presentation of new and selected works by renowned German sculpture artist Angela Glajcar. Widely recognised for her 'Terforations' – a fictitious title coined from Latin 'Terra' and 'perforations' to suggest exploration of new territories – Glacjar interacts with thick sheets of paper or glass mesh to create her own breakthrough mindscapes.
With a recent focus on site specific monumental work, the artist returns to her favourite medium of paper to explore a new dimension in her work: scale. Glajcar's latest pieces explore the intimate, diminutive and tactile, more suited to a tabletop than a vast museum space. By introducing this new smaller dimension to her work, Glajcar continues her dialogue with contrasts of light and texture, natural and artificial, public and private, whilst reminding the viewer that power is never a question of size.
Born in Mainz, Germany in 1970, Angela Glajcar studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, Germany as a master student of British sculpture artist Tim Scott (b. 1937). Initially engaged with wood and steel, Glajcar embraced paper as her medium of choice, fascinated by its complexities and inherent juxtapositions. Her work has been exhibited around the world, and most recently been included in 'Paper Routes – Women to Watch 2020' at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, USA. Monumental in-situ installations can be found at the Powerlong Museum, Shanghai, China, Museum Wiesbaden, Germany and the Museion Bolzano, Italy, as well as international private and public collections.
