Elke Westen (Independent)

Studio Elke Westen was established 1994 and is working on Public Artwork and bespoke commissions mainly in glass, concentrating on cutting-edge techniques and ecological sustainability.

The work can be seen in Public Buildings in Europe (Kevin Street Garda Station, Dublin; State Laboratory of Ireland; Kildare Library; Ulster Hospital Renal Unit Belfast; Harzwasserwerke Hildesheim) as well as in art collections like the State Art Collection of Ireland, Artesanias De Columbia, The Art Collection of the Dalai Lama.

I am a qualified Designer and Master of Arts. combining my professional knowledge of digital media and hands-on art/craft to transform colour and light into semi-transparent pieces of art.


Curator’s Areas of Interest:

My studio creates architectural artworks and site-specific installations mainly in Public Buildings. I am specifically interested in artists and their pieces, working in this field, growing new national and international opportunities and connections for and with them.
Established in the field of glass-design, I am particular interested in work with this material.
New media and digital work is welcome.
