Silvia Lerin moved to London in 2014 after developing an established career as an artist in Spain where she was represented by Gallery La Nave in Valencia and in Germany by Sophien Edition gallery in Berlin.
Her created objects/assemblages stem from an interest in the relationships between shapes, volumes, colours and textures and their resulting presence. Inspiration may come from found objects and remnants of objects that carry stories, or from fissures or folds in materials.
Her CV includes regular solo exhibitions across Europe and inclusions in international art fairs. Silvia has received numerous awards and grants. Her work is exhibited in many museums and public buildings in Spain and, is featured in many private collections throughout Spain and abroad.
More recently, she has exhibited her work in the Prairie Center of the Arts in Peoria, IL, USA, while she was doing a residency and received an award from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, NewYork in 2014 that funded her to come to London, where she decided to stay. Recently she has been selected for The Florence Trust Residency in London which will culminate in an exhibition in August 2017.
