Silvia Paci

b 1990 Prato, Italy. Lives and works in Florence.


In my artistic research the body plays the most important role, it is the tool that allows us to be in contact with the world. In my paintings, there are always bodies, rarely perfectly realized. These ephemeral figures express the passage of the human being into a chaotic world. Within my works, different situations are visually intersected. Modern chaos is represented by overlapping layers of painting. Colors that evoke fear or discomfort contrast with those which invoke hope, while elements of destruction alternate with pleasing elements. This is the reality that i see, a constant alternation between negative and positive forces, hope and despair. I try to create images that are not discounted, but i want the viewer to question what is happening on the canvas. I love to create ambiguous images where everybody can create their own story. The technique of oil painting allows me to create a visual difference where more dense and violent brushstrokes alternate with more defined ones. This technique allows me to create a rhythm within the work.
