1996

oil, Acrylic and photosensitized linen on canvas

244 x 366 cm
Portraits, interiors, still-life and abstraction are all conversing in similar time, together in a hyper-textual visual story. The connections do not seem forced, so much as nearly random.

1990-91

Oil and acrylic on canvas

216 x 266 cm
Using cinematic techniques of quick edits and the surprises of super-imposition, Salle’s images float in a world of simultaneity and equilibrium.

1993

Oil and acrylic on canvas

213 x 290 cm
Salle’s images are all images which you can see through. They have a transparency, or they have openings, they have a space you can pass through.
Old Bottles

1995

Oil and acrylic on canvas

245 x 325 cm
David Salle’s images come from a variety of sources including magazines, stock photographs, and pornography. Salle puts these images together in a painting the way another artist might create a collage using scraps of paper.
