Regina Silveira

Disorienting Depth: Amazing Optical Illusions in Art Galleries:

With some simple black markings that mimic the architecture of the gallery walls and windows, artist Regina Silveira makes visitors feel as if they’re walking on air. In an installation called ‘Depth’ at the Atlas Sztuki Gallery in Lodz, Poland, Silveira applied a large-format, digitally generated image to the flat floor surface to make it seem as if the room extended four stories below onlookers’ feet.

Silveira plays with light, shadow and perspective to create the optical illusions that make up the bulk of her oeuvre. Currently showing at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut is an installation called In Absentia, which gives empty pedestals exaggerated shadows that depict art objects that aren’t actually present.
