Multi-awarded Brazilian artist Regina Silveira’s showcases large-scale, streamlined graphic designs that seem to just lay themselves out on walls, floors, ceilings. Regina is renowned for her parodic explorations of space through geometric constructs.
Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1939, Regina Silveira’s installations, sculptures, prints and photography have intrigued the international art community since the 1970s. Renowned for her parodic explorations of space through geometric constructs, Silveiraʼs work is celebrated for both its conceptual rigor and formal impact. Utilizing technology and graphic manipulation, her art examines the ephemeral nature of the sculptural object, dissolving space and time. Inside the gallery context, her self-conscious role as both an artist and craftsman has led to the development of a formal language that has impacted her contemporaries; outside the gallery context, her large-scale public installations have inspired new perspectives on space, materiality, and visual parody.
