Artist Ana Thiel to Exhibit Works Never Before Seen in México

By Paul Louis

A group of sculptures by internationally recognized Sanmiguelense artist Ana Thiel will for the first time be available for viewing in San Miguel, to be shown at the artist’s studio in colonia Guadalupe.

Thiel will open her studio to the public on Sunday, December 16, making it possible to see works that until now have only been viewable in Europe.

Thiel received her diploma as an industrial designer, but continued her studies and decided to specialize in glass sculpture techniques at the Pilchuck Glass Center in the United States. She learned under various artists from the Studio Glass art movement. Two encounters were decisive: one with the Czech couple Stanislav Libenský and Jaroslava Brychtová, arguably the most sculpture-oriented artists in the world of glass, and one with Swedish artist Bertil Vallien, who at the time was widely recognized as the greatest specialist in sand-cast glass, a technique adopted by Thiel.

These innovative artists nourished the artist’s creativity, which very soon found its own and singular identity, characterized by an unusual audacity within the world of glass artworks. Thiel’s creativity was quickly recognized in the European world of glass, and the artist was invited to various symposiums, artist residencies, and exhibitions all throughout Europe.

Each symposium or artist residency is a specific experimental field, tied to the discovery of a place. For example, at the Real Fábrica de Cristales de La Granja in Spain, Ana combined industrial tools, wood, and other materials with molten glass to create sculptures that acquire through her hands a highly poetic or humorous sense. At the Museé Atelier du Verre in Sars-Poteries, France, Ana developed the project Traces sur Traces (Traces upon Traces), in which she looks at nature and architecture for traces, hollows from which she takes impressions as elements of memory from a culture different from hers. She fixes them in glass metaphors.

The resulting sculptures from these and other artistic European adventures have for the first time crossed the ocean, an opportunity for art lovers to be the first to discover in San Miguel an aspect of Ana Thiel’s creativity that up until now could only be known through images in different publications.
