Anne Silber studied at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and has lived and worked in the Boston area since 1977. Silber’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions around the U.S. and Europe, and is included in many corporate and museum collections. Additionally, her serigraphs have appeared on the sets of numerous films and TV series. Working in the realm of still life allows her the luxury of control in creating a small, ordered universe, with all elements carefully chosen and arranged.
These artworks are serigraphs, or silkscreen prints, hand-printed by the artist using hand-cut lacquer film stencils. The inks are mixed with a large amount of transparent base, allowing for the visual "blending" of overlaid tones, creating an effect like that of well-controlled watercolors. The editions are very limited in number, with an average of about 50 or 60 impressions.
