Every cloud has a silver lining

‘Every cloud has a silver lining’ is a well-known proverb, popular in the Victorian era to elicit a sense of optimism in a time of great adversity. In the context of Silver, the proverb acts as a metaphor for the optimism, humour and inquiry adopted by many Queensland artists who have historically practices in a place somewhat immune to art and culture.
