Silvia B
Zoë’s Break – 2020
Mixed media on tree branch, bikini bottom, espradille.
105 x 150 x 45cm

A dedicated observer of human behaviour and representation, Silvia B. denotes the schism between the constraints imposed by a cultivated reality and the deeper intuitive and instinctive layers that lie within us. Her meticulously and patiently crafted sculptures are hybrid beings -confusing species, gender, culture and age – finding their way through the maze of existential dilemma’s in contemporary life.

Silvia B. (1963) lives and works in Rotterdam, NL. She studied Fashion and Sculpture at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam (1983-1986) and Art History at Rijks Universiteit Leiden (1990-1992).

Her work is represented in public collections such as Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Museum Voorlinden, KRC Art Collection, as well as in various international private collections.
