Regina Silveira, is known for the experimentations with light and shadow. The elastic properties of shadows has taken her work close to an amorphous art, consisting of pictures intentionally distorted, except when viewed in a special angle. Elements of emotional and sensorial order significantly enter the hypertrophies and other alterations of her images. Even departing from geometrical grids to make parodies of the rules of perspective, she is still free to explore the ambiguities of perspective with a sense of humour.
