Born in Rome in 1983.
Caterina Silva investigates, through painting, primary emotions – such as fear, joy, delirium – that push the human being towards the creative act. After a training period in London and Rome, between 2005 and 2008 she worked on performance projects between Paris, Sicily and India. In 2008 she moves to Rome where she explores a research on the expressive possibilities of painting made of radical and silent gestures that query and rewrite reality. In 2012 she obtains residency at the Cité des Arts in Paris. She currently lives and works in the Netherlands where she’s finishing a two-year residency at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten Amsterdam.
