Persimmon Tree is pleased to introduce noted Brazilian artist Regina Silveira to our readers. We honor her in this issue for the innovative work she has done over more than thirty years.

Regina Silveira investigates the ways in which reality is represented. She employs various methods of projecting perspectives, reworking and deconstructing them to produce images such as shadows without a solid base or shadows that contradict their base. She also uses traces and imprints to convey her understanding of presence and absence. Her transformation of architectural buildings and the space within is both whimsical and profound. As we look at these paradoxical images, we, the viewers, are led to experience reality not as a fixed entity but as one with countless possibilities.
