Hello, I’m Adrienne Silversmith

I am a contemporary artist working in primarily in oil, encaustics and mixed-media. My subject matter includes the figure, cityscapes, landscapes, coastal scenes and also abstract art. I am inspired by the things I see around me, both the natural and the man-made world. In many of my encaustics or mixed-media pieces I often add found items such as tree bark, seed pods, glass , nails and other metal objects. I also am fascinated by how the quality of light and shadows affects certain structures such as architecture, landscapes, boats, water and especially on the figure. I am a forever student of the human figure, particularly the quality of flesh, how it has mass, color and life; how it informs us of the structures underneath or cushions them. It is my forever muse.
