Salgado’s practice is an evolving process exploring concepts of identity through assertive, gestural figurative paintings. Salgado’s practice (re)considers the tangibility and impermanence of the body, but also inwardly comments upon the fragility of self. Accordingly, Salgado exploits the purely physical properties of media to inform resonating themes within his work. In an effort to surpass a literal (re)presentation of his subject-matter, he prioritizes a visceral, sensual, topographic painting surface, toward an evolving language of figuration and abstraction. The work asks for consideration of what is visible, what is tangible, and what is suggested: pulling the viewer from the sutures of representation, and drawing attention to the painterly versus the metaphorical.
