Stephanie Silvi’s paintings abound with color and motion. Aided by masking tape, the artist creates thin, vertical bands of color that overlap and dance before viewers’ eyes. The resulting dynamism creates a visual depth that makes the work seem as sculptural as it is painterly. In her smaller pieces, Silvi uses layers of resin between paint applications, increasing the work’s seemingly three-dimensionality.
The artist received a BA from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA. Her work has been exhibited at Ellis Gallery, Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, Frame Gallery, all in Pittsburgh, PA, and Atlantic Gallery, New York, NY. In addition, her work is in many corporate and private collections including Agilent Technologies, Palo Alto, CA, Novell Corporation, Provo, VT, and the US Embassy, Kampala, Uganda.
