Maine Landscapes & Seascapes 2012-2014
For over twenty years I was a resident of Mexico. In 2012 I returned to Maine for personal reasons. I have established as a goal for my recent work in Maine to express Maine’s true 'essence.' For I paint Maine as unforgiving–the land, sea, and sky as uncompromising, demanding your daily awareness and testing your ability to live with nature as a constant in your life. No people, buildings, lighthouses–only the land, sea and sky. You may want to ask: “What can I do to help guarantee this fragile environment is maintained and not destroyed by our very human presence?”
The paintings range in size 16 x 20 to 24 x 28 inches, framed; and most are on either Ampersand hardboard or Birch hardboard. To inquire as to details call: 207-869-0999. All art is unconditionally guaranteed.
An art reviewer wrote: “His Maine series has a topological quality but with an expressionist feel, there is an underlying force–in many of these pieces. The paintings seem alive, on the verge of change, as it seems to be the case for the land, sea and sky of Maine. Salazar’s treatment of Maine ‘landscapes’ with innovative techniques gives his work a real dynamism." For additional information: see www.salazargallery.com
