“The narrative is psychological, rather than literal.” - Susan Silvester
THE ARTISTS: Susan Silvester is an interdisciplinary artist who is from greater New York City. Her experiences working on TV shows sculpting prototype toys has influenced her current artwork. During her freelance days, her projects included working on TV commercials (the Pillsbury Dough Boy, Twizzlers Candy, and Teddy Graham Cookies); creating illustrations (Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Santa and the Snowmen, and the retired Back to the Future ride at Universal Studios); and making sculpture prototype toys sold as kids meals (for Wendy’s, Burger King, and Texas Instruments educational division). She received her Masters in Fine Art from California State University, Sacramento and Bachelor of Fine Art from Long Island University, Greenvale, New York. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the region.
THE ART: My interests lie in the use of imagery, specifically young adolescents, creatures, and imaginary landscapes as a vehicle to express emotions and relationships. The work is influenced by art history, current events, pop culture, fairy tales, and my own personal history. The narrative is psychological, rather than literal.
