PKG | Sylvia Safdie

Sylvia Safdie, Lebanon 1942, lives in Montreal, Canada.

From the page: “Safdie paints with the earth. Earth is collected in small earthen bowls. For the artist, the earth constitutes the rawest of raw materials: the original source from which the formal practices of painting and sculpture diverge. The earths are included neither for their pretty colours nor their malleability, but simply because they come from different places around the world. In this way Safdie strives to achieve universality in work. She is not only an artist of earth, but an artist of places.”

Human traces, elusive outlines born from earth and soon disappearing.
