1967, Hohenems, Austria — Moved from Austria to California in 1996
I work towards simple shapes, listening for what wants to come through.
My process follows my relationship with the material, and evolves as my piece takes form.
I follow my intuition. The final result is often a surprise.
“Silvia reduces her form to its very essence, thereby enabling her sculpture to reveal
its very own truth. So many artists aspire to this, but few succeed.” - Emily Lazarre
