Piece description from the artist
A painting of my mother and my grandmother Eva. Using an old black and white family photograph as inspiration, it evokes a soft-focused, stylized impression of the 1940s. I'm inspired by the trademark clothing and hairstyles of this era. The perspective has been eliminated in the figures and cars and creates flat graphic shapes.
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.
