Silvija Saplys has a fine arts diploma from Toronto School of Art from 2012 and has been involved in Ontario College of Art and Design visual arts courses.
Interested in natural disasters and faltering ecosystems, Saplys explores man’s impact on nature in her work. Her process mirrors the human-created transformation of the natural landscape. Saplys uses both photography and acrylic paint in her process, first photographing moving scenes, then distorting and re-capturing them in paint. Through painting, she explores the physical properties of the medium to capture a spectral effect of something that may soon disappear in our world.
