Sobre el projecto realizado en la Casa de Velazquez

“Silvia’s work refers to the body as a reflection on the passage of time on our skin and in our flesh. Her paintings take the oxidized bronze sculptures, the moss green color as a way of claiming the beauty of the passage of time, of the need to accept change. The invasion of the rather matt patina that settles on the previously smooth and shiny skin indicates a process that is common to all bodies.”
