"Kittens, Ice Cream, Life and Death"

"Kittens, Ice Cream, Life and Death"
Silvia Argiolas
Painting and drawing
4 June - 25 July, 2020

For the title I thought: "kittens, ice cream, life and death".
The topics covered will be superficiality and interiority... 
We as a human race are facing an unprecedented situation with life and death.  Our history is anchored in these two pillars, but for whatever reason, things get melodramatic as we go. "New normal" is a continuous stream synonymous with Silvia Argiolas' practice. 
We are a social body, and getting sick. Our oneness rings as a bell. Silvia Argiolas has been ringing that bell throughout her own life, and that ring sounds relevant to us all in this particular time.
Silvia doesn't sugar-coat her living relationship with physical and metaphysical existence. She brings it on - tangible, visceral, not for comfort, first-hand experienced conversation with the reality of self: Bring Silvia closer to ourselves resounds through the experience we all share as a society within the Covid-19 pandemic.
