About the Book
Renowned for his unmistakable, dynamic sepia-tone panoramas, Silken's new images in Color of Wind, presented by Bacardi are saturated with the brilliant colors of some of the most breathtaking ports of call, including Grenada, Newport, Palma de Mallorca, Porto Cervo, and St. Barth’s. Stretched five feet wide on “gallerie wrap” canvas, the scope of this exhibition invites the viewer to experience a taste of the high life, including exceptional locations and multi-million dollar superyachts. Silken's remarkable timing captures the interaction between yachts, and the dynamic play of sailing. Whether invited aboard the newest superyacht or flying in a helicopter, Silken uses his privileged access to these private vessels to find unique vantage points and delivers an arresting perspective on the sport. The scope of this collection of works takes the viewer out of daily life and into the beauty of motion, color, and competition that lives on the water. By playing with space and geometry, Silken brings the viewer into the action of the world's most dramatic locations. The exhibition, sponsored by Bacardi and produced with StudioMilano, runs concurrently with Bacardi Miami Sailing Week, from March 7-13, 2010.
