Artist Statement

Her creative approach is based on the notion of “Transformed Memories“. The subjects appear, in a precise or vaporous way and manifest reminiscences of senses and observations. Through “flow“ are revealed perceptions and emotions. Such as visual tales, the painted representations bring new symbolic lives and feelings.

During the creative process, Sylvia Baldeva unfolds the subjects in a continual play between control and letting go. Without any sketching process, she works directly on the surface. This allows her to express directly the creation impulses. Her art takes poetical paths with a timeless dimension.
