Piece description from the artist
Focusing on a family in a particular region of the world. What sets them apart are the very graphic patterning of their clothing. Clothing may change, but the most basic of human needs, desires, and dreams are timeless and universal. Working from the lens of the camera, I've tried to capture the moment, but beyond the picture, to tell a story about people, and a location, allowing viewers to fill in their own insight.
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.
