Piece description from the artist
A bird's eye aerial view of a suburban development on a cul-de-sac .The flattening of the picture plane reduces the details to a strong circular graphic. The shadows hint at a time of day and add some perspective.The juxtaposing of this color palette combined with graphic but soft-edged shapes convey a feeling of time, place and individuality.
Toni Silber-Delerive, a Manhattan-based artist and graphic designer, has been making art all her life. She always wanted to be an artist. Art is her passion. Toni's work is featured in private and corporate collections and has been in many solo and group exhibitions.
The colorful and bold aerial Landscapes Toni creates show the world from a different perspective. By flattening the picture plane, they reduce details to strong graphic images. Her paintings capture the moment and let the image tell a universal story about a place or location.
Toni's silk-screens are her painting's close cousins, only in a smaller format and using a different medium. An appreciation of unconventional views and eternal human habits come together in her up-close, above-view paintings of food. The figurative painting collection, many based on old family photographs, offer a stylized impression of different periods and subjects.
