Sophia Szilagyi’s work explores the tension between fiction and non-fiction, delving into the murky, viscerality of memory. The results are steeped in wonder, fear, beauty and danger, poetic visions that although digitally constructed, feel painterly.


‘all was quiet’ is an achingly beautiful work. From the velveteen black rear ghostly trees, their bodies silver under the moon. Szilagyi glides down a river at night — sky and water slicked together, black and impenetrable.

This work is a digital print, influenced by painting, film and photography. Szilagyi is a highly-renowned artist. She is the recipient of the Banyule Award for Works on Paper, and represented in the collections of Artbank, State Library of Victoria, Print Council of Australia, and the Queensland University of Technology Art Museum.

For collectors of contemporary prints and landscapes, ‘all was quiet’ will impress. It comes from Rona Green’s curation of fifty prints, exhibited at Geelong Gallery.
