I Never Knowed It Before.

Battlefield Boyfriend + Mud Nurse

a life's work of dirty wash
u give me a flower
I keep it forever.
Flannery Silva (b. 1991, Stone Ridge, NY) is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work flirts with crossed sentiments of desirability and control, the benign, erotic, and abject. Silva’s work reflects an adoration of material and references straight out of the attic-stored pasts of artists who spent some crucially formative years far from IRL. Burrowing deep into commercial and intimate fantasies, Silva creates narratives concerned with childhood Holly-Hobbie energies, a rehearsed language of symbols, and the ways in which damage can translate to gestalt. Recent exhibitions include 03: Opening_to_the_Sighs with Sue de Beer & Susan Cianciolo, Interstate (Brooklyn, NY) and Fawn's Leap, NY with Jacky Connolly, Kimberly Klark (Queens, NY). Her work has also been shown at Et al. Etc. (San Francisco), Centre For Style (Melbourne), HQ HQ (Portland), Evening Hours (New York) and sophiajacob (Baltimore). Silva is a member of the band Odwalla88 with Chloé Maratta.
