Cai Xi Silver

Edge-CXLII | Edge-CLIV | Edge-CLVI


The works of Cai Xi Silver are extraordinary not only for their gutsy textures but also for their comprehensive exuberance. Mixing wood chips with acrylic paint, she uses trowels to apply the paint. Sometimes, when the trowel gets stuck in the paint, she leaves it there, as in Edge-CLIV. Some of her canvases are full of paint; others show interplay between raw, unpainted surfaces and painted ones.

Born in Chongqing and educated in the pilot program in Fine Arts at the Shanghai Drama Institute, Silver then traveled around China, sometimes paying for her room and board by donating a painting she had just completed. Her works are now purchased by collectors on both the eastern and western coasts of the US and in China.
