At once comic, contemplative and expressive of the human condition, Ernest Silva's body of work reflects his interest in using multiple-narratives to explore personal and universal images. Recognized for his metaphoric imagery of deer, lighthouses, water, birds and figures, Silva will present an engaging conversation between his earlier and more recent work occupying two exhibition galleries. 

Silva derives his imagery from a variety of sources: family photographs of his childhood in Rhode Island, vintage story book covers from the 1950s, popular culture and art history. His imagery is also informed by memory, providing a panoply of symbols that combine to activate a strong emotional response. Interested in the intersection between painting, sculpture and installation his exhibition will reflect a combination of the three that will transform the galleries into a stage set with drawings and paintings on the walls and props on the floor. Silva encourages the viewer to become part of the painting and the story, losing the separation between artist, art and audience.
