What is mixed media painting?
A mixed media painting is one that combines different painting and drawing materials and methods, rather than only one medium. Any materials can be used, including collage items such as pages from magazines, newspaper, photographs, fabric, soil, or packaging.
Asked about the mixed media paintings he has done; Salazar said: "I'm proud to have my work selected and looking forward to see the other artists mixed media creations that were selected for this National show 'Mixed Media 2022.' I've been working with mixed media paintings, and with sometimes, collage applied, since 1955. I was a resident artist in Mexico until 2012. I've found mixed media painting challenging and liberating, when done well. My recent series, "NRG: Energy" three from this series on display at the Art Center, July through August, were painted in 2019. My most recent work (2021-22) continues to explore what new ways i can include in my mixed media wet in wet applications and wet in dry paintings. While I've done mixed media on canvas and panel I prefer to use paper; and the NRG series is all created on paper. I use Stonehenge paper and with much success using natural Stonehenge."
