‘Silvi’s Images are the windows to the infinite, keys to the meaning of what we call beauty’ – Brian Gilkes
Silvi Glattauer is a practicing photomedia artist from Melbourne, Australia.
A founding member of The Baldessin Press & Studio, Silvi is recognised as an authority on the Photopolymer Photogravure process as well as working with a range of other photographic processes.
The central themes in Silvi’s work relate to nature, and narratives. There is a connecting thread about materiality, about object, and about preciousness.
Her images are about beauty as felt by the sense of sight and touch. Silvis approach is to collect, to archive, to classify and to record. Her narratives are strongly related to storyboards of time and places.
Silvi has exhibited throught out Australia and abroad, most recently at the Museum of Victoria and twice Boweness shortlisted finalist. Major acheivements also include winning the prestigious Nillumbik Prize and commissioned by the Victorian government to create a documenetary series for bushfire recovery and memorials in 2014 and 2016. Selected artist in residence for Print Residence, Barcelona and Inkmasters, Cairns.
Silvi’s work is held in many private and public collections, including the Albury and Geelong Regional Galleries, Melbourne Museum, Monash Gallery of Art and Nillumbik Shire council.
