Greg Dougal writes:Thought-provoking work from artist Adrienne Silva invites us to study what is happening in her work and what we can learn from it. Our heritage is a rich resource which , as we grow ourselves, we seem to understand and embrace-how it has informed us. Yet is is elusive and eroded by the passage of time and other factors beyond our control so we cannot delay our search for hidden meaning. Adrienne lives & works in Lisbon Portugal , fully emmersed in investigating the Universal.She does not differentiate between art-making and daily routine. Political Philosophy is her grounded foundation and forgetting Picasso’s quote.”No painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war.”
