Fine artist Alice Zilberberg creates alluring photo based digital paintings, where photography is only the beginning of the final artwork. Having spent over a decade developing her own distinctive technique, her works are comprised of many photographs, and carry a variety of elements such as colour, toning, manipulation, and painting. She often travels across the globe to record different backgrounds and elements for her creations. Works take months to complete, with every detail meticulously inspected for perfection. With a poetic style of expression, the meanings of her images unravel through metaphor and symbolism that aim to inspire the viewer to look inward. For the past several years, her repertoire has explored themes pertaining to the human condition, namely personal identity, emotional intelligence, relationships, and emotionality.
Born in Tallinn, Estonia, and raised in Israel, Zilberberg currently resides in Toronto, Canada. A graduate of Ryerson University’s Photography program, she began her artistic practice by painting: a verve which remains very much present in her digital works. The winner of numerous prestigious competitions, including first place in The World Monochrome awards and ranking as one of Magenta Foundation’s best photographers in Canada.
