Brazilian-born Silvia Poloto is an accomplished artist working in a range of visual disciplines. Recognized for her dynamic compositions and color sensibility, Poloto exploits a vibrant visual palette of boldness and subtlety. Her artwork is characterized by equal amounts of surprise, playfulness and provocation.
Poloto has worked in a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting and printmaking. Elements of each of these media find their home in her current work. In describing this exhibition Poloto writes, "I tend to work in series and for this exhibition I have chosen to present work from several distinct yet undeniably connected bodies of work. My work tends towards an amalgam of materials and ideas with one thing in common. Saturated with my energy, the images are personal and visceral responses to life as I live it daily."
While San Francisco is her current home, her work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and abroad, including United Arab Emirates, France, Spain, Jordan, Italy, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and China among others. In the Bay Area, her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Italian American Museum, the Triton Museum and the DeYoung Museum, where she was an artist-in-residence. Poloto’s work has been acquired by more than 90 institutional and corporate collections around the US.
