Renata Schirm, Dawn, FI, 2022

Hungarian born artist Renata Schirm creates evocative, material-focused work that conveys emotional and physical sensation. For over ten years Schirm has worked primarily in glass, favoring the intrinsic versatility of the material.

With her latest group of works,” The Furs Series”, Schirm has focused on the optical qualities of glass. The works are made by hand sewing thousands of tiny glass beads onto a flat base. In manipulating the infinitesimal components en masse, Schirm builds up a rich textural composition, reminiscent of fur, that is both painterly and reflective. As light travels across the surface the work constantly changes its appearance.

Many of her works are included in public and private art collections, and have been published in several catalogues. She has shown internationally exhibitions and museums. Schirm works and lives in Helsinki, Finland.
