'Of Beauty and Doubt' is de first and up-to-date monograph on Dutch artist Silvia B. This book documents nearly 25 years of work and contains over 200 full colour illustrations. The meticulously and patiently crafted sculptures of Silvia B. are in the first instance highly attractive, luring the viewer to come and take a closer look. It is then that their disquieting aesthetic becomes apparent as it is realized that their beauty is of no ordinary kind. These figures are hybrid beings: between man and beast, doll and robot, confusing gender and age.
