Silvana Solivella was born in 1964 in Geneva. She graduated in 1989 with a degree in Fine Arts from the Faculty of Fine Arts in San Carlos de Valencia, Spain. She has also received training in engraving and restoration of works of art. Originally from Spain, she works since the early 90s in Lausanne. Her work is punctuated between her native country and her adopted country, allowing her to create atypical works, constantly oscillating between shadow and light.
Her works are about memory, trace and oblivion while evoking the sea, landscape of her childhood. Between abstraction and figuration, her work unfolds a story not only biographical but also universal.
She received the Irène Raymond Scholarship in 1996 and the Alice Bailly Scholarship in 2004.
