ABOUT SILVIA ROCCHINO

Maybe my past as an archaeologist has left traces in my creative process.

While the subjective habit of excavation has stayed, my object is now of flesh and blood, of heart and soul. I try to get behind the secrets of humankind. I aim to uncover hidden beauty, a beauty that does not merely exist on its own, but that appears behind gestures, movements, textures and colors.

My mission is to awaken my subject’s awareness and enable her to tell her story. As there is no magic without the magician, beauty cannot exist without the individual radiating it.

For the power of this animal called human, all the topics catching my attention are related with human nature: identity, body, connection, diversity.

My name is Silvia, human, queer, female, free, honest, outspoken, artist.
