Title: Earth & Sky - 18
Medium: Oil on linen
Size: 24" x 36"
Silver is continually discovering new "paintings" in her surroundings on walls, sidewalks, and other surfaces. It could be wrinkled clothes, weathered bricks, patterning in cement, or stone surfaces -- commonplace, yet exciting to Silver.
She applies to canvas, by the gallon, acrylic paint mixed (usually) with wood chips using trowels, which sometimes end up embedded permanently in the paint.
Her selected solo exhibitions include: Kaos Gallery, Wilmington, Vermont, 2001, '02, and '03; University of Wisconsin- Madison, 2001; Lakeside Fibers, Madison, WI, 1999 and 2000; Charles Chamot Gallery, Jersey City, NJ, 1997; City of New York, Department of Health & Human Services, Jamaica, NY, 1996 and 1997; Federal Aviation Administration, Howard Beach, NY, 1996; Jamaica Arts Center, Jamaica, NY, 1994; Abney Gallery, NY, 1993; and Chongqing Modern Drama Troupe, Chongqing, China, 1986. Silver also exhibited in Hampton Road Gallery, Southampton, NY.
