Natalie Silva explores and documents human interactions with nature, focusing on light and its infinite colors. In Silva’s work, human figures are situated in an aqueous space that is seemingly indistinct, yet recognizably fluid. She explores how these figures interact with space, as shown through the concordance of iridescent colors, organic gestures, and eclectic use of light. Silva propounds, “[My characters]express themselves through color, brushstrokes and movement”.
