Sibylle Szaggars Career
Sibylle started her career as a painter and is still working on pure arts. One of her best paintings, Shape of Color is known as being one of the largest oil paintings. She formed this piece of art collaborating with Nina Kotova. She has dedicated her work to Mother Nature. Her work also reflects her spiritual consciousness. Sibylle works to spread awareness about the environment and the activities that destroy it. Most of her paintings are inspired by nature, ancient cultures such as the ‘Hopi,’ and the Moroccan and the New Mexican high desert. One of her most popular works, ‘Rainfall,’ displayed Sibylle’s profound love for nature. She later used her series of paintings to create a stage play titled ‘The Way of the Rain.’
Moreover, she is also the multimedia environmental artist and founder of Way of the Rain Inc. She founded Mexico Nonprofit Organization in November 2015. Her income and value are somewhat confined. However, her husband Redford has a whopping net worth of $170 million.
Sibylle moved to the US in the late 1980s. There, she learned a lot about Native American culture and its spiritual connections. She incorporated her learnings into her next series of paintings.
In the early 1990s, She shifted to Utah, where she established her painting studio in the mountain village of Sundance. In 1991, she organized her first solo exhibition in Salt Lake City. In 2000, Sibylle traveled to Morocco, where she visited some ancient towns and villages. She was moved by the silent beauty of Draa Valley. She used her experience in a series of oil sketches and photographs that displayed Morocco’s history and tradition extensively. The paintings were exhibited in San Francisco soon after the tragic incident of 9/11.
From 2002 to 2003, Sibylle worked on creating a new series of oil paintings of flowers and vases. In 2004, she began working on large paintings, using abstract watercolors. She described this series of her work as “non-figurative inventions that carry no symbolic burden.” She collaborated with world-renowned cellist Nina Kotova to create a series of large-scale paintings titled ‘Shape of Color.’ The series was exhibited at the 2008 ‘International Classical Music Festival’ in Cortona, Italy, and later in Singapore.
In the summer of 2010, Sibylle began experimenting with rain and watercolor. She named the series ‘Rainfall.’ Sibylle used natural rainwater in the paintings. She would wait for the monsoon to hit the New Mexican high desert and then place her abstract watercolor paintings in the open and let the rainwater work on the paintings. Sibylle shared this unique way of painting through her film ‘Rain Painting.’ Icelandic musician David Thor Jonsson was the music composer of the film. A part of her ‘Rainfall’ series was exhibited for the first time in 2011 in the Principality of Monaco and France. The purpose of the exhibition was to raise funds for the foundations of Princess Caroline of Hanover. Continuing with her fascination for rainwater, Sibylle created the stage play ‘The Way of the Rain.’ The play was her tribute to the Earth and its universal elements. The first stage backdrop that she designed for this play was inspired by her ‘Rainfall’ series, and the design symbolized water falling from the heavens. ‘The Way of the Rain’ debuted in 2013 at the ‘Highland Theater’ in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In 2014, Sibylle collaborated with choreographer Desmond Richardson; American musicians Will Calhoun, Dave Eggar, and Chuck Palmer; lighting designer Steve Cohen; video artist Floyd Thomas McBee; and sound designer Ron Saint Germain to create a new version of ‘The Way of the Rain.’ The narration was done by Sibylle’s present husband, Robert Redford. This site-specific version of the original play was performed at the ‘National Young Arts Foundation’ in Miami, Florida.
‘The Way of the Rain’ was an official selection at the 2015 ‘Sundance Film Festival.’ It was performed at the ‘Complex Performing Arts Center’ in Salt Lake City.
