Ines Silva

Born in 1970 in Caracas (Venezuela) based in the United States since 2010. Ines Silva developed an inclination for the arts, since her student days at the architect faculty at the Central University of Venezuela (UCV). After graduating with honors, she decided to focus on art choosing to concentrate her plastic work within the currents of geometric abstraction and constructivism. Ines constant investigation of this movement has given her the ability to permanently explore new creative possibilities, both in the formal and technical aspects and in the material. Ines has distinguished herself for some years, for the use of plastic material (Plexiglas) as supports of her work. Ines paints on this material planes, stripes or lines in vivid and translucent colors resulting in an unlimited number of views that allows it to be fully appreciated from any position.

As a result of her extensive research she earned the Critics Award at the rst biennale of sculpture at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the UCV in 2002; the next year she participated with her work at the Salon Pirelli of Young Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Caracas, and in 2010 she showcased her work in the “Spirit of Geometric and Constructivim Art” at the Tome International Art Triennial of the Satoru Sato Art Museum in Japan.

Ines’s trajectory continues to succed landing her participation in international exhibitions in Europe. She participates in salon Comparaison (2006/2015) and Réalités Nouvelles (2014-2015) and “Art Construit Latino-Américain Nouvelles Propositions”, Gallery “Denise René rive gauche”.
