About Me

"I feel the material that is moulded in my hands, thoughts and emotions take shape among wooden boards, chalks and colours, experiencing that art is the manifestation of our soul, of our essence..."...

This is how Silvia describes her way of giving shape to her paintings, with brushes, chisels, often only her hands, working and assembling different elements such as wood, plaster, polyurethane foam, resins, wire mesh, sand, glass, glitters, and more. Transforming the material and making it alive through the shapes, colors and reflections of the world around it, sometimes real, sometimes visionary.

His works are characterized by plays of light and shadow that change with every vision, creating a three-dimensional and dynamic visual approach, where the pictorial elements, colors and light refractions merge in a material alchemy of strong expressive impact.
