Silvia Lerin moved to London in 2014 after developing an established career as an artist in Spain where she was represented by Gallery La Nave in Valencia and in Germany by Sophien Edition gallery in Berlin. Her created objects/assemblages stem from an interest in the relationships between shapes, volumes, colours and textures and their resulting presence. Inspiration may come from found objects and remnants of objects that carry stories, from fissures or folds in materials or from organic shapes and structures. She has exhibited her work in the Prairie Center of the Arts in Peoria, IL, USA, and received an award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York in 2014 that funded her to come to London. She is currently in residence at the ‘Casa de Velazquez’, in Madrid, working on a project funded by Valencia City Council.
