Title: About Face 2m x 1.8m oil on canvas
I paint life now.
I have never differentiated between what I do when I create and my daily routine.
For me, creativity is the essence of being and you will see this in my inspired projects, where I question roots and individual displacement, human- and world suffering,and where meaning lies.
Andrew Lampbrecht, University of Cape Town, Michaelis School of Art writes about About Face:

Thought – provoking work from popular South African artist Adrienne Silva invites us to study what is happening in her work and what we can learn from it.
