Color is the soul of my work; its exaltation and contrasts make me vibrate high. For me color is synonymous with life and the philosophy I embrace "To love, value, and respect the life of all beings that inhabit this world." Abstraction always plays a role in my paintings, whether partially or fully, as does texture. Although my media of choice are acrylic paint and synthetic enamel, I like to combine different materials and techniques such as oils, asphalt paint, inks, and collage. I alternate between thick layers of paint applied with a spatula and small, refined strokes made with the finest brushes. I also like to use rubber rollers. I generally choose themes that are related to the pursuit of truth; a pursuit that must be undertaken inside and not outside ourselves, because it is within us that real transformation takes place. Nothing changes collectively unless the individual changes first. Through my art, I convey ideas of peace, love, faith, solidarity, and harmony between humanity, nature, and the cosmos. I like to transmit the mystical and magical. There is a symbolism that is repeated in many of my works, such as the eye. It is the eye that tries to see and find the truth by diving inside me; it is the same one that observes what happens around me and allows me to learn, drawing my own conclusions through my intuition.

ag_artist_statement : The axis of my works is generated around my vibrations and towards what I want to express. These perceptions do not manifest themselves in the same way. Each work bears the stamp of the moment of creation. I choose color as the alma mater of my work, because I assimilate the concept "color" with the concept "life" so that in certain opportunities I need to generate a noticeable contrast between them, while in others the need passes through the fading, that dilution that has to do with the sensitive expressive. The same happens with the lines that will sometimes be neat and neat lines, modulated, and at other times I will require the hand to travel loose, expressive, free, with an abundance of pigments and different thicknesses and textures. The warmth and order of my atelier is essential, where I select the music that accompanies my task, according to what I want to create and I let the music be one more inspiring element, allowing me to express myself at the same time, singing or dancing, integrating the body gestures as an element of free manifestation. My works transmit messages related to love, Light, positive Energy, high vibrations, freedom, urging the awakening of humanity, so that it manages to free itself from all kinds of slavery or manipulation. In my intuitive being I feel that this is my Mission in Life. Abstraction has always seduced me, partially in the figures and totally in the treatment of the backgrounds. Textures are also the protagonists of my works and I like to paste the backgrounds with spatulas, a technique that I also sometimes transfer to some figures. I do not rule out pouring with synthetic enamels. This mode of treatment in the act of throwing one or more colors over another background creates a center of attention that is characteristic of my style. I like to find myself in my work with details that connect me with my great references: Picasso, Xul Solar, Guayasamin, Dalí, Cándido Portinari, Tamara Do Amaral, Pollock or Basquiat. Each work takes its time, whatever its construction requires, without pressuring me about it. Partly because I am highly careful and detailed, dedicating time to correction, to perfecting lines and colors or also to the message I want to convey. I stop at each of them for three to four months. I have for me a phrase that identifies me: "I am my first critic, I know when my work is ready to face the world because before, it confronted me." Going from the subjective to the objective, in an exercise of detachment and depersonalization, in search of my purest and most translucent expression.
ag_biography : The city where Silvia de Rossi was born is the second largest in the Argentine Republic, Rosario, in the province of Santa Fe: a true center of culture in all its manifestations. This environment was the one that also surrounded her family since her childhood and her first artistic forays of childhood were related to the carving in chalk with abstract figures of heads that, without knowing it, referred her to African art, a reference that she found some time later, in the work of Pablo Picasso. The concept of two-dimensional captured his interest and with the passage of time, he brought those carvings to that style, where their faces assimilated into each other became notorious, a characteristic that remained in his work over time and that mostly identifies it. Considering his inclination for art as a very personal asset, he decided to pursue a career in Dentistry as his main activity, but in it he discovered that all the elements that he manipulated within that specialty were transformed into art: dental pieces, tissue preparations to be observed in microscopes permanently referred her to the field of abstraction. At that point, she corrected the course of her aspirations and, leaving dentistry aside, she began the Visual Arts career until finishing them as Professor and Graduate in Visual Arts at the National University of Rosario. After completing his studies, he began as a teacher in the three levels of education: primary, secondary and university where, in addition to conducting the courses, he was culturally enriched with the creations of his students, to whom he always provided a field of freedom to that they could carry out their expressions. In the 2012/2013 period she begins a new stage, which continues to this day, where the epicenter of her activity is painting and she concentrates on her Atelier work, achieving a production that encourages her to participate in National and International Shows, Contests and Salons, achieving an interesting expressive richness. Member until 2021 of the catalog of an Art Gallery of Madrid, locally it is represented by the Consultant and Art Gallery GECULT. His style derives from the constant deepening of various philosophies and currents of thought that are emphatically resolved in a synthesis in which Nature and the Beings that inhabit it take on singular importance, forming a WHOLE where the spiritual change that begins with each individual is pre-eminent. , but which in turn is part of a Divine Plan that relates and connects human beings with each other and also connects with the Source. She is recognized as influenced by those who were her great teachers and inspirers: Pablo Picasso, Guayasamín, Xul Solar, Portinari, Dalí, De Kooning. Basquiat and Tarsila Do Amaral, about whom he constantly investigates and forms the substrate of his creations. In his work, colors of strong intensity predominate, directly relating the nature of color with Life itself. Her incessant explorations lead her to combine techniques, incorporating reliefs and textures of all kinds where expressive freedom is manifested in lines, spatula fillings, unconventional materials, abstraction being its permanent and main protagonist, both in the development of the figures. as in the absolute abstract backgrounds: a metamessage of suggestions and mystery in which the impregnation of high vibrations prevail, the essential presence of light, the concept of peace and love, supports of his work in the intention of generating a current permanent expansion into the Universe.

ag_press_release :

Silvia De Rossi’s stylized masks first came to her as a child, as she carved chalk sticks during school classes. Before embracing the two-dimensional, she forged sculptures out of palm leaves, which she painted with tribal motifs. Although abstract in style, De Rossi’s compositions rest on solid drawing foundations that use perspective and color contrasts to evoke an illusion of depth. Taking cues from the American and European avant-gardes, her work plants its roots as far back as prehistory and is heavily influenced by African tribal art, as echoed in the powerful simplicity of her designs. This dichotomy is also present in her choice of materials: a combination of traditional media, such as oils and acrylics, and other techniques, including synthetic enamel, dyes, asphalt paint, and collage for added texture.

De Rossi feels the injustices of our time deeply and her oeuvre is a mirror of the reality she experiences around her. The artist, however, is not interested in forcibly pushing her own agenda; rather she operates from the inside, with the firm conviction that true global change springs from within. The eye, a symbol found ubiquitously in her work, is a tool for self-analysis and reflection. It holds a magnifying lens on her feelings as well as those of the viewer, reinforcing the idea of conscious unity, which pervades the Universe.

De Rossi holds a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts and Art Education from Universidad Nacional de Rosario. Based in Rosario, Argentina, she exhibited locally as well as in Uruguay and Spain. For decades she taught art in schools and private workshops to adults and children. From them, she has received the precious gift of spontaneity and boundless imagination.
