This is an excellent example of early, original Salinas oil on canvas, that is from the late-70's. This was a particularly rich period for Salinas, who was deeply influenced by the Abstract Expressionists, and his mentor Joan Miro, who he studied with for years, in Barcelona. Works from this period are sought after, and very difficult to find.

The actual medium is a combination of watercolor, gouache, pastel, charcoal and graphite, on canvas. The result is gorgeous. Salinas was deeply influenced by the Abstract Expressionists, and his mentor Joan Miro, who he studied with for years, in Barcelona.

Baruj Salinas is the most significant, and well established contemporary artist this gallery represents. He has work in the permanent collections of over 35 museums, and has had over 100 solo shows worldwide. This is outstanding, and difficult to find work, from this artists' most sought after period, and is investment grade original art. MLA Gallery not only provides a guarantee of authentication in writing, but also offers a life time trade in policy. Please inquire.

Salinas is quoted as saying: "Because of my connection and collaboration with poets and writers such as María Zambrano, José Angel Valente, Pere Gimferrer, and Michel Butor, I developed a concept of the language of the clouds. This consisted basically of a grey background with white as the main color of my palette–the white symbolizing clouds. I also used pictograms, ideograms, and strange alphabets like the Greek alphabet, the Hebrew alphabet, and the Iberian alphabet". On another occasion Salinas was quoted as follows: "To me, painting is not work. It is something that transcends labor. I love to be in my studio painting because I forget about everything else. I’m so concentrated on it that it is like a meditation. I concentrate on what I’m doing and I enjoy it while I’m doing it. I enjoy seeing a wide space being developed into something that has life. It’s always been the most important thing in my life. And architecture was never so.”

Very reasonable. This work is priced at well under market value. Please inquire.
