Sylvie Mayer is from Providence, Rhode Island and attended the Rhode Island School of Design, receiving a BFA in Painting in 2018. Since, she has been an artist-in-residence at Elsewhere Studios in Paonia, Colorado, as well as at the Fondation des Etats-Unis in Paris, France. She currently lives and works in Taos, New Mexico.
Sylvie works mostly in painting and drawing. She is informed by transitions; the last days of fall when the leaves barely hang on to the trees, the moment of reaching a hand out to give or receive, the passageways and thresholds that mark our lives as we navigate aging. She paints moments that serve as turning points, capturing the implied possibility that something is about to happen.
