> DESCRIPTION


Singing hair (Cantando Capelli) is the first exhibition in the United States for this young Italian artist, whose work has attracted serious attention from art critics, curators and collectors in Italy.  Silvia Mei  graduated the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in 2012.  Her most recent exhibit, Rough Thoughts (Pensieri Ruvidi) took place earlier this year at the Palazzo delle Stelline, in Milan. She lives and works in Milan.

 
The work created for this exhibition is for the most part a dedication to artist's partner Roberto and her sister Daniela.  For Silvia Mei painting is experienced as a song, a melody that streams at the viewer through the paper.  Paper becomes a receptacle and a record of her artistic process with all the finds and discoveries, but also with all its accidents and "spills".  This exhibition is conceived as an uninterrupted and unending hymn to what she refers to as a  "dark, deep matter within oneself," a substance that is in equal measure  revolting and intimate.  Hair, being a symbol of one's animalism, become an extension of this matter.  As something that takes roots within us, the strands become an image of sincerity.
 
"In these paintings the hair is a link, both physical and emotional, to the people I love".
