In her photography, Silvia Sinha departs from general perceptions of reality. Her focus is instead on a deeper exploration of spaces that surround us, spaces which are too often viewed without regard to the subtlety and intimacy of their viewpoints. Whether in nature or within an architectural structure, she seeks to deconstruct her subject while maintaining the pre-existing order and essential characteristics of the place.
By deliberately focusing our attention, Silvia’s minimalist photographs highlight inherent structures, creating a sense of closeness between subject and viewer. For her work, she frequently chooses empty interiors or landscapes, which – through the break-down and interaction of structure and light – give architectural elements and colors an entirely new dynamic.

“Lucid Intervals” – Exhibition LIGHT BREAKS
@atelier davidseck, November 2013 – Basel, Switzerland.
Silvia Sinha’s new photographic works from the series “Lucid Intervals” are examples of a confrontation with the empty white space. She is particularly drawn to white surfaces where contrasting areas of color on ceilings and floors or areas of light and shadow add to the composition of the space. By breaking up the existing architecture, she creates a new visual unity. What remains is a conceptual imagery, which in its minimalist form borders on constructivism.
In the exhibition LIGHT BREAKS, Silvia exhibited two installations from her series “Lucid Intervals”.
In these difficult times when museums are closed and exhibitions cancelled, artists need your help. To support artist residencies and other programs, such as the one that helped inspire some of Doris’ new work below, please consider making a donation to Project Art Lounge. There are many ways to support artists. You can even send a “For the Love of Art” postcard, including one inspired by Silvia Sinha’s participation in a Project Art Lounge residency in 2017. If you have a creative person in your life, and want to encourage their passion, share a few words with them “the old fashioned way.” Get “real” and send them a postcard by mail. A share of proceeds help sustain artists and their projects. Join Project Art Lounge in saying “we support artists!”
