Whenever I am looking for an art oasis here in San Francisco, I try to plan a visit to the live-work space of Silvia Poloto. With Silvia, the line dividing her life from her art is definitely blurred.
She lives in a space where she is completely surrounded by her art – works both finished and in progress. Her life permeates her art and it is, in turn, permeated by it.She told me that she cannot imagine living in a space where she could not immediately access her paintings at any time. It is not that she needs to be constantly working; but, ideas for work can come to her at any time and she loves being able to walk into her adjacent studio when that happens.
