Toni Silber-Delerive (b. Philadelphia)
Toni's 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 and skillful use of color. From the elevated position of high-rise buildings and helicopters, her 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. Through the aerial vantage point one discovers a modern perspective and fresh visual vocabulary. The flattened plane reduces details to strong graphic images.
Born in Philadelphia, Toni studied painting at the Philadelphia College of Art and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts. A Manhattan-based artist and graphic designer, her work is represented in private and corporate collections and has been in many exhibitions.
Toni Silber-Delerive was chosen as a Juried Winner in Round #8 of the 2013 ArtSlant Showcase series.
