Lauren Silva

Painting in oil and acrylic, Lauren Silva alters the perception of dimension and space with a palette that erupts, perforates and unfolds, at times resembling a split prism. Whether working as large as eight feet in height or on a series of continuous smaller canvases, foreground dissipates into background by way of parti-colored emanations, a brumous density that obliterates façade and dwells in a deeper register of form, color and composition. Silva resists stylization by further varying her paint application, from thick, vegetal impasto to sprayed pigment in halos of evaporation. 


Silva’s paintings and ceramic sculptures have been featured in both group and solo exhibitions at ZieherSmith, New York, in addition to group shows Zevitas Marcus, Los Angeles, Circuit 12, Dallas, TX, Laurel Gitlen, New York, and Jekyll&Hyde, Chicago, among others. In 2011 she attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, Maine.
