Silvia Patamia is an artist born and based in Rome, Italy. Her interest in brushes and palettes began when she was just a child. This led her to choose art school and later to attend university courses in art history. For more than 10 years, she lived in southern Italy, where she worked as interior designer, participating in local art exhibitions. Here, where the line between dreams and waves is thin, she has fallen completely in love with the sea, which has become her faithful companion in her drawings. For many years now she has been back in Rome, in her hometown, which continues to inspire her every day.
Silvia’s works come to live in many forms: paintings on mirror or wood, watercolors, mosaic. Her palette is characterized by bright colors and the protagonists are often shades of green, blue, violet, combined with linear, intangible and clear brushwork techniques. Her figures appear as fragile but at the same time they are suspended and moving, as if they wanted to communicate, trapped in an endless dream. They take shape through detailed motifs that remind of the pat-tern of Gustav Klimt, with clear influences from the Naïve Art.
Her only love, the sea emerges in different facets, in the form of abstracted octopus and fishes, decorated kimono with silver motifs, mandalas, tiffany glass and mosaic. Her paintings seem to radiate hope and light, but behind them lies a deeper meaning. A melancholy tangled in a loop of dreams, a metamorphosis of butterflies, dragons and creatures, a desire for redemption. Sil-via’s world loses itself in infinite details, in the search for decoration that brings out her passion for medieval art and illuminated manuscripts.
