Jury report Artist of the Year 2023
Barbara Nanning has become Artist of the Year 2023 in the category Gallery of Contemporary Artists 2023, 1st position.
The versatile oeuvre of Barbara Nanning includes large-scale installations, ceramic- and glasssculptures.
She received many international prizes for her ceramic works using the unique, sparkling, velvet-looking coloured sand finish that she developed.
Her large-scale installations can be found in indoor spaces, public streets and in cruise ships. For many of her monumental commissions, Barbara makes use of advanced computer designs. Moreover, she has developed types of finishes new to the industry that can be applied in large-scale projects.
Since 2000, Barbara has focused particularly on glass. She is constantly working with colour and light in a new manner, trying to capture the movement of nature by bringing it to a standstill; time caught in glass.
Her work can be found in the collection of more than 70 international museums.
