Winter Exhibition in Putney Arts Theatre, London Comments

Winter's coming. For me, there is a good and very sad time again, in front of me. Mum's anniversaries, dedicated to my mum. Did I know her well... What do I remember about us? About her life and passing away a while now ago. 

To remember many moments. To gather and share it with my closest ones. It might be sad. 

But it's fulfilling too. 

It's different. What makes us very fragile and very human. 

And there's an intense art moment too, an exhibition where I am participating in with a series of paintings. The link/image follows.

The abstract-looking painting with the silhouette on the top of the road is mine and it's not so black and white when is seen face to face, like any winter journey beginning. Feel welcomed to see the exhibition if you're in London. If not, check the @PutneyTheatre webpage.

The Travellers Comments

The Travellers, Pic 1, Putney Arts Theatre, Summer 18.jpg


I am showing here a few images of The Travelers Part 1 – a series of my paintings, mixed media, oils and oil pastels on canvas and linen currently shown in the Putney Arts Theatre, London. See the picture of the old building of the Union Chapel built by Sir Samuel Morton Peto in the late 19th century too.Putney Arts Theatre, pic 4.jpg  

I' m expecting my paintings to reveal their other face to the fresh eyes of the new viewer. The series is expected to initiate a few varied thoughts and deepen in the struggle for identity, sanctuary or shelter, in search of the root of a meaning of life.

For me, this journey moves through the innerness or otherness towards the metaphorical or the symbolism in the attentional blink of memory visions.

It's part of a difficult journey where it interferes. But where there’s hope, there’s life.

Who is interested in my art, my paintings here or just would like to share a few thoughts, insights or suggestions on the theme of The Travellers Part 1,

 please contact me 

via my webpage www.maria

Thank you for reading my message and looking at my art endeavours!

s'Elf ad-Dressed Comments

I've been very intrigued by the connections between my recent painting Do I Know You with my s’Elf ad-Dressed video journey. For me they made a difference with the new raised questions in my ongoing art research - art and memory or painting and seeing the past in a different future. It has been an extremely rough and sad patch in my life recently with the loss of my mum at the end of 2016. The shown image has been painted, destroyed and etc... and it is based on the photos of her visit to see me and to remind me my never ended conversation with her. The instant reflection, the movement and the memory are very important for me. To see it and engage it in the texture of the art image. The process of painting, I love it and leave it by itself at present. It's a different journey. It has been opened the door for a series of paintings and artworks. They do live their own life. The shown video is a different story. It has been and it keeps a sort of symbolic visual diary of the darkness and the journey between the art medias and realities for me. And it represents a very different approach to the art and memory for me. It's been created with the thought of us rushing to see her gravely ill and that she already had been a shadow of herself, but she was still alive. It's not about me to dwell about it. It's like the sinking ship of memories in the sadness. In the depth of the thoughts and emotions. Before seeing them getting very personal.

slipping away Comments

You realise it from practicing art that a separate artwork isn’t a statement, because it’s going way beyond the artist personality, not so close to many efforts to create a self-portrait. Because there’ re so many ways to see yourself and represent it. When would that be accepted as an art work and start to talk to the people , it is a different story. The video was created at an end and a beginning. Are they linked one to another and how, it's about to think of the ambiguity of the seen and the thought. But I love the water spaces, the nature and the music of the world when we're still inhabiting the earth.

My Hope! Comments

 Briefly what I would like to think of the current security info storm and say to whom would read my current message.

We all know about the changes today, on May 25, 2018, in the new EU General Data Protection Regulation. 
I will keep you informed about my upcoming events and publish the photos and images of my physical work via my webpage, according to the security policy of the Artmajeur and my own knowledge on the subject for both our sakes! 

For my personal website contacts, hopefully, we will keep our personal contact safe and unharmed without any unpleasant problems! Be happy to meet each other in our highly digitised world too!
Even after 25 May, we are all the times free to learn and improve the rules, the search for personal security barriers and have the freedom to communicate, enjoy art, know more about a work of art and be us too, I hope!

Security Protection

Before Valentine Day Comments 2

According to the ratings, I just read, the best romantic movie to watch on Valentine's Day could be the old classic "Breakfast at Tiffany's"?
I could only imagine what's the reason for the strange tribute I noticed in the lovely sunny spell yesterday, left carefully in the corner from a distance to the bench memory plaque. The beloved Loreen had enjoyed this place and the beautiful views in all its moods. It's windy and very cold now.

Happy New 2018! Comments


There is a saying that truth comes from the child's mouth.

In childhood we have unstoppable curiosity of the world too.

Me and my family, we're going through a difficult patch in life with the loss of my mum. And I am thinking of  a child's time now.

With my sad loss, It's a crucial time again to resume much in life, to remember it. To learn your lessons and to forget about it.

Love vs...

A Life. 

Is at stake.

Let  always find light in darkness!

A New Year for us!

The Last Ship and Atonement in the Aesthetica Magazine Artists Directory Comments

"Maria Emilov Silvestar believes that the creation of art serves to bridge existing language barriers, as well as peeling back the layers of what appears to be familiar.

New images can recapture the lost meanings of words, as well as having a range of contemporary resonances on social and aesthetic levels. They help us to develop our knowledge and understanding of the universe."

The Last Ship.

Atonement Comments

#art #artshow #artshows #artgallery #artgalleries #quiet

A different perspective of the people's complex everyday journey alive. My participating painting is called AtTONEMENT. You could see it in the video. And it has many meanings. I only would add a quote of Steinbeck I thought by now.“As happens sometimes, a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment. And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment.”
― John Steinbeck, Of Mice and Men
