Exhibition: In the Shade of a Cactus – Silvi Glattauer

Large scale photogravure prints by Silvi Glattauer

Silvi Glattauer (born in Argentina) is a practicing photomedia artist from Melbourne, Australia. A founding member of The Baldessin Press & Studio, she is recognised as an authority on the Photopolymer Photogravure process as well as working with a range of other photographic processes.

Silvi’s images are about beauty as felt by the senses of sight and touch. Her approach is to collect, to archive, to classify and to record. The central themes relate to nature and narratives which are strongly related to storyboards of time and place. There is a connecting thread between materiality, object, and preciousness.

Silvi has exhibited throughout Australia and abroad and her work is held in many private and public collections. She has been a Monash Gallery of Art Boweness finalist three times and winner of the prestigious Nillumbik Prize.
