Gallery4Culture presents Here Forever, a solo installation of new drawings and sculpture by Seattle-based artist Carolina Silva. Impermanence is the theme of Silva’s exhibition is the acknowledgement of the ever drifting character of human nature. Silva examines a sense of place while conversely recognizing the sheer impossibility of permanence.

Silva’s drawings capture spaces in which what is seen is as important as what remains hidden or invisible to the eyes, forcing the viewer to imagine and project that which lies on the other side. A brief text accompanies each drawing, providing a caption that gives a hint to a story. Juxtaposing contradictory materials, her sculptures bring into focus the uncertain boundaries between light/darkness, sound/silence, visible/hidden. Silva’s intention is to create a space for the impossible.
