Painting with Light: glass transmits light, by painting and surface working on transparent and colored glass, Ingrid Pichler manipulates reflected and transmitted light. The exhibition captures everyday moments and applies them onto glass using traditional techniques such as glass painting, staining and fusing. Ingrid Pichler has worked in architecturalglass for almost thirty years. Throughout her career, her hands-on approach has enabled her to develop a keen understanding of the transformative potential of light in the context of architectural glass. Most of her workshave been commissioned, location-specific installations, utilizing a wide range of techniques from traditional painting and staining, to new innovation for fusing and casting in contemporary glass technology. Originally from northern Italy, Pichler studied art and design, and architecturalglass in the UK before moving to the United States where she now lives with her family in Massachusetts. She works from her studio in Swampscott,and guest lectures in stained glass at Salem State University.
