  • INTERIOR LANDSCAPES

    6 April 2017

    I have been an abstract expressionist painter since age 5. The immediacy and reshness of this style as well as its complexity and boldness has always spoken to me. To this end I paint with acrylic paint in an alla prima style, in a spontaneous and physical way, moving back and forth across the painting surface, making marks that dance across that surface. I start by introducing color, shapes and line, then respond to their development. I move these elements around, adding and removing paint in multiple layers. The work pushes and pulls itself to completion. I have had the good fortune to live in New Mexico for a number of years where the light, sky and general landscape are captivating. My work is inspired by this beauty surrounding me and is a translation of the energy of my environment onto canvas, panel or paper. More recently, my work has focused on my own interior landscape, guided by my intuition and emotion. 

  • VERVE

    2 March 2017

    Lightness, simplicity, color and a logical evolution remains consistent throughout my sculpture.

  • GEOMETRIC: Organic

    26 January 2017

    Color versus Shape          
    Silver’s color is dynamic and strong, yet it is the shape that tells the story. The shapes are either geometric or organic.  His “geometric shapes” fool the eye and create the illusion of depth and/or movement.  In contrast, his organic abstractions flow as in nature, encouraging the viewer’s own interpretation.  Silver’s contrasting styles are captivating and not to be missed.   

  • LINKED - Opening Reception

    5 January 2017

    “Painting is an integral part of my spiritual practice and a constant reminder that we are all inextricably LINKED to the world we inhabit. The work is an extension of my consciousness combined with qualities gathered from the natural world. They are indeed conduits through which information, sensations, inspiration, and guidance flow to and from the collective consciousness and the Universe.” - Michael Kessler

  • COLOR COLLECTIVE OPENING RECEPTION

    8 December 2016

    I am inspired by Life.  To capture a personality, a moment and the true essence of whatever I am painting is what drives me. As I observe the world around me, I will see someone sitting in a beautiful pose and know I need to capture that gesture at that moment
