Sky Pape’s process based work combines gestural and structural painterly elements to create cohesive, intriguing, and visually pleasing pieces. The work is at once instinctual and carefully crafted.  Watery, gestural sweeps of Sumi ink are intertwined with high-pigmented crisp geometric lines and shapes. With both a sense of control and spontaneity, these paper works are sophisticated and balanced. Pape masterfully directs the viewer across, around and through the paper. Colorful shapes and lines are balanced and tempered by Pape's gestural ink strokes.Sky Pape’s work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Tiffany & Co., Le Cirque du Soleil, and other public, corporate, and private collections.

For fourteen years, until 2000, Pape maintained a parallel career in scientific research, primarily in the fields of schizophrenia, genetics, and traumatic brain injury. Her research analyses were published in the American Journal of Psychiatry and other publications, while her artwork has twice been the cover of MIT’s Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience.
