Paintings by David Salle

Juxtapoz // Monday, 31 Oct 2011

David Salle, one of the more influential representational painters working during the 1980s and 90s,  has a unique collection of references. While working as the art director for a publishing company that produced romance and pornographic magazines, he archived many images that would later be source materials for his paintings. Using these images from popular culture he created these paintings with oddly juxtaposed styles and a distinctly collaged aesthetic.
