“By insisting that we uncover and decode the saga she reveals in her work, Poloto insures that we will ultimately remember it. Her emotions are held by the powerful human drive to survive and thrive at all costs, something Silvia Poloto consistently achieves with personal dignity and aesthetic grace.”
