Musician Series—

Silve's musician paintings are inspired from watching artists perform: from a deaf Irish percussionist who feels with her feet the vibrations of a symphony orchestra to a blues singer in a smoky tavern or a street musician on the sidewalks of Provence, France. Through expressive lines and shapes of color, Silve captures their consciousness turning inward, reaching deep inside themselves, their body movements reflecting the elation and struggle, the pleasure and pain of their art.
