Oxide II


Silvia tends to create in series, often in response to her current environment, like a visual diary of circumstances.  This artwork is part of the series ‘Copper Skin’, which again is a semi-autobiographical series.  Silvia’s investigation into the  oxidation process of copper has captured her imagination, suggesting to her the poetic and metaphoric revival of the Phoenix.  The unique green epidermis that envelopes the metal suggests transformative and protective beauty.  The ‘Oxide’ series is made up of sets of paintings on heavy-weight engraving paper but using the traditional ‘Collagraph’ additive ink stamping technique.  Each painting is therefore unique, yet similar to the other paintings in the series.  The painting measures 76 x 107 x 3.5 cm and is attached to a 88 x 119 cm ‘conservation museum’ mat. Here we present Oxide II, a variable edition of 6 works that are all signed, numbered and dated by the artist.  The work is unframed but can be framed for you on request.

The price includes shipping in a custom-built crate to keep the painting safe during transit.  To watch a video of the artwork, follow this link

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 has recently completed a residence at the ‘Casa de Velazquez’, in Madrid, working on her project Oxide (series) funded by Valencia City Council.
