Sylvia Levenson

Silvia Levenson’s kiln cast glass art is a conceptual examination of the muddy middle between political and personal landscapes. She examines the personal impact of violence from both political forces and intimate partners, as we humans strive to create the il- lusion of safety, security, beauty, and happiness amidst impending treachery and threat. Now living and working between her refuge in Italy and her birthplace of Argentina, Levenson speaks with the resonant voice of a global citizen. She addresses sweeping issues using a vocabulary of images and artifacts that are disarmingly commonplace and recognizable across continents and cultures. By Colleen Bryan
