Description & Technical information

Through his paintings, Salcedo explores emotional and existential concepts, rather than figurative subject matter. He hopes that paintings like Magic Flute #6 will give the viewer an internal experience. Working in a style that is synonymous with the artist, the picture’s surface is constructed from layered paint, sometimes more than thirty layers deep, in an array of extremely bold and stimulating colours. His work shows an expression of his inner feelings; the application of multiple layers, invites the observer to dive into the colours and explore the shapes and forms on the canvas.
