About Silvia Trappa

All my works are inspired by daily life, in a fast world I work on the concept of time using as main media sculpture and drawing. I would like to create a language that everyone from everywhere can understand, something that will appear easy and light at the first sight but that hides a critical view and a deep meaning. I’m interested to expand my knowledge finding new inspirations, discover and learn about old and new history of different countries, taking things that affect me and reusing it in a new and contemporary way. The main focus is to make people think about topical facts through something that they already know, because it’s a part of our history. In the last few years I focused my research on materials, looking for kinds of sustainable materials, as a result I started to work with paper, which became one of the main materials of my sculptures. I’m interested in social art and I got experiences as a volunteer.This approach made me stronger and now I plan workshops about creativity and recycling for children and people with different kind of disabilities.
