She has been working as an assistant of Anatomy Drawing and Painting at the same Academy. At the moment Silvia Giordani works in Venice, as an assistant of the artist Federica Marangoni.

As a visual artist, Silvia Giordani works mostly with traditional oil and acrylic painting on canvas and paper. Her practice comes from a personal need to explore the space that surrounds her, in order to find a dimension of slow reality. Her desire elucidates her research approach towards conceptualising mimicry in a metaphorical state of the disorientation of the real. A particular, meticulous combination of acrylic and oil, a play between control, precision and unrestricted movement unfolds, it becomes evident on the pictorial surface that the artist is conscientious with regards to the quality and potential of her medium. Natural landscapes metamorphose into ethereal, whimsical scenes.
