Shattered Glass Animal Sculptures by Marta Klonowska
Marta Klonowska is a Polish artist from Warsaw. Her passion is sculpture and she creates installations of her amazing shattered glass animal sculptures, typically placing them in front of historical paintings from masters like Rubens and d’Agar. While the source paintings had the animals in secondary roles, Klonowska makes them the focal point. As she explains to European Glass Context:
“Animals are difficult to understand and it is difficult to communicate with them. My glass animals open therefore a new reality, which is different from ours. The sitters in the painting, the animals and the audience of my art perform in a kind of theatrical stage, where the different levels become indistinct. This clash of realities should make us think about the uncertainties of life.”
