Silvana Benacchio is a multi disciplinary artist living in Australia. Silvana explores the hidden worlds of disconnection and connection; within the natural world and also within herself, seeing the two concepts as intertwined. Through her work, Silvana highlights the imperative need to care for both ourselves and the environment.
From childhood she felt a disconnection from society and sought solace through a spiritual connection with nature. As an adult her fascination developed into seeing the whole matrix of life and the holographic Universe; the systems; patterns and signatures between ‘nature’ and the human body and human society.
This fascination and passion reinforces and illustrates the fact that humans are part of nature not separate from nature as some may think. We are part of and contain the signatures, patterns, fractals of nature as a whole.
Her wish is that we all see the interconnectedness, interdependence and interrelationship of all of nature and lead us to better respect, care, appreciate and enjoy this one Earth, our home.
