Emil Silberman’s sculptural compositions open the doorway to the subconscious and exploration of the human experience. Silberman is interested in capturing the subtleties of the human psyche, the flaws of human nature, the interactions between the sexes and beyond. He skillfully translates his thoughts and feelings into artistic forms. To him, these forms represent a language that communicates deeper truths than words alone.
Silberman works with a variety of materials combining them in unconventional ways. “The Drowning,” for example, is a composition combining a plaster sculpture with found objects, such as glass bottles and wood. However, the artist considers materials to be secondary to the message of the work.
