About his work, the curator from Afro Brazil Museum, Emanoel Araujo, stated: “His coherence combines the sensations of the pleasures of the table and of art. He is a creator of matter-sensations; now he conceives different forms of feelings, as in a laboratory, now his installations propose a dialogue between the nature of things. Those of nature and those created by man in an always difficult relationship. Silveira's sensitivity is embedded in the subtle observation of these different contrasts ”.
