Silvie Mahdal

Silvie Mahdal is a self-taught artist using the traditional combination of charcoal on paper to create (hyper)realistic drawings. She attempts to portray a sense of realness in her creations but at the same time abstraction in their meaning, to balance revelation of high level of detail and protection of an intimacy of the subjects, to personify the elusive and ordinary pleasures of life. Her work celebrates simple and raw motifs. Subtle postures of the female body or its fragments. Being at ease. Relaxed. They speak to us in a very soft tone. Their calm invites us to be present with them for a while. Silvie loves spending time in her bright and airy studio. The process itself and the themes create a harmonious unity and help her to cultivate an inner peace and an elevated state of mind.
