Veronika Beckh

A Berlin-based artist, Veronika Beckh has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe. Her work invites viewers to disconnect from the noise and chaos of everyday life and to find light, tranquility, and contemplation. Beckh used her 2011 residency at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass to expand her practice beyond smaller objects and ensembles toward room installations. She experimented with scale, combining blown pieces with float glass and mirror to integrate with and respond to space, light, reflections, and the viewer. Her current work often uses simple forms composed to create complex installations with precisely calculated optical effects.
