Silvia Zimerman, 2022
Technique: Multiple Firings, Folding, Fusing, Pate de Verre
The artist's intention is to transport the observer to her world of fabric.
Following a long period of uncertainty, fear and anxiety the artist chose to imagine the protected, carefree haven of her childhood which contained soft, caressing fabrics that became in her father's skillful hands, a protective blanket, a warm coat, a spoiling poncho. Warm, happy childhood memories of fabric enfolded her in a secure, protected world of bright, calming colors.
Flashes of piles of fabric and thread arise in memories connected to her father being a tailor and his workshop El Taller, who passed away at a very young age. Imagining them created in glass, their softness and diverse textures a wave-like motion, thread through her childhood memories to keep her father and his workshop close by.
