About the Artist
About Toni Silber-Delerive
Realistic in my perception and approach, I paint aerial views that represent the diverse places and spaces of our contemporary landscape with a focus on compositional aesthetics and color to communicate perspective. One discovers in the aerial vantage point, a modern perspective and fresh visual vocabulary. The flattened surface plane reveals tenuous textures of abstract space, providing pictorial milieu and verve. It offers a viewpoint of reduced depth and a different perspective, creating less predictable detail and more abstract shapes while retaining the essence of the area. Drawing from the elevated position of high-rise buildings and commercial jets, I produce images of cities and towns, factories and farmlands, power plants, suburbs, and highways.
I received my B.F.A. in Painting from the Philadelphia College of Art and studied at the School of Visual Arts. A Manhattan-based artist and graphic designer, and my work is represented in private and corporate collections. I have been in many solo and group exhibitions.
