Sibylle Szaggars was born in 1957 in Hamburg, Germany. As a teenager she traveled extensively with her family throughout Europe, Morocco and Malaysia. She already then started to admire the depth and mystery of older cultures and traditions and would record her experiences through painting and sketching.
Her continued interest in old cultures and traditions would lead her to the mysteries of Native American Culture. She found special power and magnificence in the arid mesas of Arizona and the Hopi traditions. In residence on the mesas for some time, she learned about Native Americans spiritual connections to life, the land and the world. The result of this experience was a large series of paintings which were marked with a spiritual resonance.
Her developing concerns for the future of our environment let her become active within her work to warn of the impending dangers of extinction
In 2004 Szaggars started creating large painted abstracts as well as water colors. In this powerful series she breaks free from any confinement and she describes this work as "non figurative inventions that carry no symbolic burden".
Szaggars has exhibited internationally in Germany, England, Italy, USA, Peru, Japan, Singapore, Monaco and France. She is represented by Ernesto Mayans Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Linda Fairchild Contemporary Art, San Francisco, California and Galerie du Forum Kamil in Monaco.
