Silvia’s main concerns are underpinned by her cultural background, with an interest in how we consider our cultural and personal identities and memories. She looks to nature and poetry to explore these ideas, often using photographic imagery and found elements from her surroundings as metaphor for events of the past. Botany is the link to bring her work together with her birthplace and to represent struggle as essence of the life. As herman de vries said “without our relationship with Nature, our life and culture are lost, and how these two components in our lives influence one another”, in a way to recognise who we are.
Since graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2020, she’d been part of different collaborative projects like “Photosensitivity & The Natural World” or “Capturing Nature” at Oxford Botanical Gardens. She got awarded by Printmaking Council for her artwork Post-Memory which was selected to show at Saatchi Gallery in London. Silvia exhibited in different galleries like Pocket Star Gallery in Athens, Artworks in Halifax, Woolwich Contemporary Art Fair, The Printmaking Lab in India or Art from Heart among others. Some of her work had been published online like Analog Forever Magazine, Superpresent or Dwell Time.
