SILVI GLATTAUER is a practicing photomedia artist from Melbourne, Australia. A founding member of the Baldessin Press & Studio (www. BaldessinPress.com.au), Silvi is recognised as an authority in the contemporary photopolymer photogravure process as well as working with techniques that cross barriers between digital and the handmade. The central themes in Silvi’s artworks are underpinned by a love of nature and a deep concern for the environment, narrated through her personal references. Silvi’s approach is to collect, to archive, to classify and to record. There are always connecting threads about materiality, about objects and about preciousness when her subject matter translates into finely crafted prints.
Silvi has exhibited throughout Australia and abroad, most recently at the Museums Victoria, and is a four-time Bowness shortlisted finalist. Major achievements also include winning the prestigious Nillumbik Prize for Contemporary Art and being commissioned by the Victorian government to create a documentary series for bushfire recovery and memorials in 2014, 2016 and 2019. She was a selected artist in residence for Art Print Residence, Barcelona; Inkmasters Cairns and Proyecto ’ace, Argentina. Silvi’s work is held in private and public collections, including the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA), the Geelong Gallery, Melbourne Museum, National Library of Australia, State Library Victoria, Monash Gallery of Art, local Shire Councils and Regional Galleries throughout Australia.
