Toni Silber-Delerive Artist Bio:
My aerial-view paintings represent diverse places and spaces of the contemporary landscape seen from an above ground perspective. The flattened surface planes convey the textures of abstract space enhanced by compositional aesthetics. From the elevated position of high-rise buildings and helicopters, my images of cities and towns, factories and farmlands, power plants, suburban communities and highways are delivered with a distinctive angle on structures frequently taken for granted. My silk-screens are my paintings close cousins, only in a smaller format and using a different medium. Projecting my interpretation of the same concept and approach, they are executed in a variety of serigraphy methods from digital design to hand drawing that produce multicolored images. My figurative paintings--some are individuals, some different pairings of couples, two friends or a pair of lovers, and some are family groupings--evoke a stylized impression of the culture or the persons. Juxtapositions of strong colors combine with a graphic viewpoint and shapes to convey a feeling of time and place and individuality. My appreciation of unconventional views come together in my up-close, paintings of food. While the colors and shapes are traditional, the oversized proportions painted from above display the subject in a way that is both original and recognizable. Overall, I strive to blend a fresh perspective with a savvy demonstration of the power of color and composition.
