An interest in the sculptural quality of things constitutes the basis of Elisabeth Czihak’s work. Drawing and photography initially occupied just a position at the edge of her artistic work as sculptor. Her strong interest in three-dimensionality led from sculpture more and more into drawing and photography. Architectural structures and the abstraction of objective forms are the points of departure and constants that she analyses in both media, in which she is concerned with space in general – its impression on her and vice versa her influence on it.
Elisabeth Czihak received a Master of Arts at the University of Arts in Linz/Austria and did postgraduate studies in sculpture at the Berlin University of the Arts. Since 2000 she is based in Vienna/Austria.
