Silvano Maxia

Silvano Maxia

Artist statement:

Silvano Maxia expresses his personality and thoughts through his colourful collages, unique in its kind, which are inspired by personal and social events with a strong influence that comes from different cultures and traditions that are part of his daily life.

 

Work statement:

During the Covid-19 pandemic I have observed how people put their personal touch and expressed themselves through their face masks, you can tell a lot about each person’s personal taste, fashion sense and a lot about their personality. By not being able to show all of their face, people are also expressing their opinion on the pandemic by the way they wear it, or by not wearing it at all. Most have embraced the new “accessory” by personalising it and making it a fashion statement.

Human Condition Exhibition – Edinburgh

“For this exhibition artists explore the complexities of human existence. From the physical to the spiritual, from birth to death through growth and change, we all share the essentials of human experience yet our reactions to life events are as unique as our DNA.

In this show, each artist gives their response to the aspects of life most personal to them.  The result is a fascinating exploration of what makes us human: from the intimacy of portraiture to the wider contemplation of spirituality, the miracles of the human body and the challenges of sickness and loss and love.”

I will be exhibiting a Triptych To Memory, there will also be an artists talk and poetry evening.

Private View 17th October 6pm – 9pm

Impressions Exhibition

Private View: Thursday 29 August 6-9pm

Most things in our hectic modern lives go unnoticed while only a few will leave a profound and lasting impression.

The exhibition explores how artists have used a variety of different media to convey the influence and Impressions left on their psyche by their subject matter.
