About the Artist
I returned to Maine after an extended painting residency in Mexico. My paintings in Maine seek to express its 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. A art reviewer wrote: His Maine series has a topological quality but with an expressionist feel. Furthermore, there is a n underlying force sort of a life 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.
