About Silvio Severino
Silvio Severino is a contemporary photographer, collage, and gif artist. He works in both analog and digital formats, which puts him in a unique creative position, whereby he can cross and recross the traditional and the contemporary. Silvio is searching for new values, new visual languages that will allow him to incorporate photography, collage, and animation in new formats. With Silvio and his work, photography often becomes collage, with collage often becoming animated gif. It is an exciting new frontier in contemporary art for which this artist is at the forefront. This is an artist that understands the technology of gifs, glitches, and loops, the bedrock of contemporary gif animation and video art. He finds himself in an enviable position whereby he can use these technologies to expand his work. Silvio is interested in exploring a range of contemporary issues through both collage and gif animation. From nature and the urban, to consumerism and the idealisation of beauty and sexuality, from art versus capitalism, to the banality of publicity and celebrity. Silvio was born and raised in Brazil, but has spent the last fifteen years in Europe, he now lives in Cork , Ireland

Artistist Statement

Coming out of the comfort of the standard shape I choose the challenge of self-identification of the pictorial space. I express my conception of the world as a process of material and emotional differentiation. In the creation of my artworks I am using extraordinary means of expression as interlaced wooden twigs lined with building material. Each work is structured and composed differently. By searching for the specific shape I emphasize my ambition to overcome the limit of time and matter. I would like to provoke a sense of something organic, of a specific form of life. For achieving the desired aesthetics I am using more muted pastel coloring in earth color tones. Painting delicately differentiates the artwork as wholeness in the space.
