Toni Silber-Delerive: Sophisticated Illusion of Depth
The work of Philadelphia-born, Manhattan-based painter Toni Silber-Delerive is a captivating fusion of lightness and heft, agility and brawn. Her figures are fleshy and substantial, evoking the sights and energy reminiscent of the roaring twenties.
Toni’s aerial paintings are striking atmospheric perspectives with sophisticated illusions of depth and natural pictorial configuration, leading the viewer by the hand on a bold, ambitious, airborne journey.
Inspired by passion for bringing her visuals to life, Toni compels viewers to see the world from a different perspective. With Richard Diebenkorn and Edward Hopper influences, Toni’s art has a familiar ring, building as it does on a tradition of smart, racially charged work. The intricacy of her imagery, in the careful balance of elegance and force, promises to carry her ideas to distinction.
For her work, most of which are large 3-feet to 4-feet oil or acrylic on canvas, Toni received the President’s Award from the National Arts Club, as well as special recognition awards from Light, Time and Space Gallery, Linus Gallery, Upstream Gallery, and Art Slant.
Toni lives with her husband, who she describes as a wonderful man and writer, and they both enjoy working from home.
You might find Toni Silber-Delerive at The National Arts Club, or one of the many NYC museums, but you can connect with her directly for information on upcoming shows, such as “Industrialism” at the Art Factory in New Jersey.
