"...there is a wonderful sense of serenity, the richness of nature and human experience, conveyed in both his subject matter and vibrant colors..."
"His technique of doing a preliminary drawing, reworking with pencil and painting again, creates a wonderful depth to his work, as do the paintings' muliple horizon lines and multi-layered borders."

"...one is transported; arms spread across the sash, forehead pressed against the glass peering into a turbulent but mesmerizing terrain."
"...full of metamorphosis, electricity and imagination."

"From small, precise compositions to large works divided on the canvas into discrete spaces, Silberberg's creations seem to transform into something other than what they started out to be. Here are abstract 'landscapes' that reach for more literal grounding; there, one finds quasi representational landscapes in the process of melting into pure abstraction."
"A variety of shapes and attitudes in palettes ranging from sandy desert hues to near psychedelic, tropical colors -- sometimes all on the same canvas. Silberberg moves easily among a kind of dreamy cosmology to more precise rendering of recognizable landscape features to loose 'collages' of geometric patterns."
"Silberberg has pulled together a number of concepts in these complex works. The longer one spends with the paintings, the more hypnotic and enchanting their effects."
