Biography


Caracas, Venezuela 1970.


Inés Silva developed an inclination for arts, since her student days at the faculty of Architecture and Urbanism (FAU) of the Central University of Venezuela, after graduated with honor in 1992, she decided to focus on art, based on the study of geometry, proportion, and color to permanently explore new creative possibilities, in formal, material and technical aspects.


For several years, one of the constant factors in Inés Silva’s works has been the use of acrylic as support of her works, she paints on these material lines or stripes in vivid colors resulting in an unlimited number of views that allows it to be fully appreciated from any position.


As a result of her extensive research she earned the Critics Award in the first Art Biennale at the (FAU) of Central University of Venezuela (2002); the next year she participated with her work at the VI Salon Pirelli of Young Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Caracas Sofia Imbert, Venezuela and she showcased her work in the Art Triennal “Spirit of geometric and Constructivism Art” at the Satoru Sato Art Museum, Tome, Japan (2010).


Her work has been shown in different countries such as Belgium, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Peru, Russia, Spain, USA and Venezuela.


Her artistic career includes participation in two art Salons, Salon Comparaisons Art en Capital at Grand Palais (2006-2020) and Salon Réalités Nouvelles (2014-2019) both in Paris, France, as well as participation in different international Art groups such as Madi group, Expansionism and Art Construit International, it is worth mentioning the exhibitions: “Nine Venezuelan Modern Masters” at The Museum of Geometric and Madi Art, Dallas, USA (2003) “Mouvement Madi International, Buenos Aires 1946-Paris 2008” at Maison de L'Amérique Latine, Paris, France (2008), “Expansionism” at the Museum Omar Carreño, La Asunción, Venezuela (2009) and “Universo Madi” at Odalys Gallery, Madrid, Spain (2019).


During her career, it is worth highlighting the Solo exhibitions such as: “Gravitación y Expansión” at Ateneo de Maracaibo, Venezuela (2005), “Euritmia” at Graphic Art Gallery, Caracas, Venezuela (2007), “De Rerum Natura” at The Museum of Contemporary Art Francisco Narváez, Isla de Margarita, Venezuela (2009), “Musik der Farben und Formen” at Museum Haus Ludwig, Saarlouis, Germany (2012), “Inés Silva” at Galerie Nery Mariño, París, Francia (2013) “Ars Modulor” at Ranivilu Art Gallery, Miami, USA (2016) and “Between the Lines” at Ranivilu Art Gallery, Miami, USA (2018).


Since December 2015 Inés Silva is represented by the renowned Galerie Denise René in Paris, where she has participated in some collective exhibitions and projects such as: “Art construit Latino-americaine nouvelles propositions” at the iconic space of Galerie Denise René rive gauche (2015), “Transparence” (2017-2018) “Que de la sculpture” (2017-2018), and “Espace et Tension” a selection of contemporary artist at Galerie Denise René espace Marais (2019-2020).


Supported by the Galerie Denise René, her work “Jardín Colgante negro” was selected for the exhibition “Negative Space” at the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany (2019) and supported by Ranivilu Art Gallery her work “Spectrum” was selected to the exhibition “For Now” at the Coral Gables Museum in Miami, USA (2019-2020).


Her work is best described by art critic Peran Erminy: “The conception of Inés Silva’s works, that is her “ars poetica” consists of designing in her work, a formal device as a group of signals, marks, lines, gaps, proportions, mobile sheets capable of organizing itself in a harmonic manner and make intelligible and sensitively emotional, the group of dynamic situations and perceptive tensions that integrate themselves or that take place in that visual event that constitutes the work and all that is displayed in accordance with or in tune with, the invisible tensions of the space around the work”.
