ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Morocco and spending her formative years in France and Israel, Silvy has made Coconut Grove her home for over thirty years. Silvy began her career as an artist with an interest in miniature ink drawings and has evolved moving toward oil and acrylic on traditional and found surfaces where she uses thick layers of paint for that weathered appearance.
Silvy work captures the space between abstraction and realism through action and movement of symbolic objects and the human form, creating at once a sense of recognition and ambiguity. She explores the unusual object in part or whole and the human form in the context of others or alone in space that is opaque, enigmatic, yet understood.
