Last year, Silvana dedicated herself to the art of wool and is making art in the form of tapestries.
She exhibits at her own gallery in Traslasierra Cordoba Nono.
“Since birth, art has been in the very air that I breathe. I grew up in the workshops of my parents who were artists. At the National University of Córdoba I played music while they were teaching. My new love is for felt-work, and the age-old technique of tapestries. In art I feel like a fish in water. It’s my real home. I wish to convey that maybe you can live in an atmosphere that comes from the soul.”
