Angela Babby (Oglala Lakota Pine Ridge South Dakota)

About the Artist

Art glass brings a fresh sparkling dimension to Angela’s work. She sees the mysterious quality of nature captured in the iridescence and saturated color of the glass. This medium allows her to push the limits of reality by juxtaposing the real — expressed by her expertly rendered enamel on glass kiln fired portraits, patterns and flowers — with the surreal, in the form of complex background patterns and heavily iridized and textured glass. Vivid colors cause an emotional reaction, and the carefully crafted bead and quill work details create the impression of a painting. These incongruities make the work interesting, unique and multifaceted.
