Patricia vokste opp i Bratislava, Slovakia hvor hun fullførte en MFA ved the Academy of Fine Arts and Design i 2017. Under studiene utforsket hun glassets muligheter, men studerte også metall og keramikk ved Universitetet i Sørøst-Norge og Häme University i Finland. Patrícia henter mye av sin inspirasjon fra naturen, og det nordiske landskapet har hatt en sterk innvirkning på hennes arbeid.

Gjennom ovnformingsprosesser, spesielt ikke-tradisjonelle anvendelser av Pate de verre-teknikken, er hun i stand til å fremstille farger, lag av gjennomskinnelighet og teksturvariasjoner som tjener til å male et bilde av lys, farge og form. Det norske landskapet, med store innsjøer, bratte fjell og fjorder, regnfulle dager som vasker over Bergen inspirerer fargepaletten i hennes arbeider.

During August 2019 Patrícia Šichmanová will show works, laser cut structures and sketches all made during the period of 2017 – 2019. The works on view in the Project Room are shown in Norway for the first time, and give a good idea of Patricia’s career from the time of her graduation till today. This is the second time she exhibits in S12.

Patrícia Šichmanová grew up in Bratislava, Slovakia, where she completed her MFA at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in 2017. She spent her formal education exploring the possibilities of glass, as well as studying working in metal at the University of South – Eastern Norway, Rauland Campus, and glass and ceramic design at Häme University of Applied Sciences, in Finland. Patrícia draws much of her inspiration from nature, and the Nordic landscape has made a strong impact on her and consequently on her work. I Patrícia works primarily in glass but isn’t limited to it. When appropriate she uses other materials as a juxtaposition to the fluidity and transparency of glass. Through kilnforming processes, especially non-traditional applications of the Pate de verre technique, she is able to create washes of colour, layers of translucency and textural variations that serve to paint a picture of light, colour and form.
