"Silvia Thornton's work is multilayered... What she portrays gives a provocative look into a mind worth paying attention to. Like an onion that one peels layer by layer, the viewer has the option to choose which level to see her art from. From her translcent treatment of opaque forms to her acid etchings, the effect is like the veil within the veil...
