“Innovative Techniques” Salazar to Show at the Maine Jewish Museum from May to July 2019
“Roots,” finds the artist expressing in paint and text his quest for knowledge and understanding of his family ancestry: his Norwegian, Scotch/Irish and German roots: unearthing the hidden past.
“Solar Flares & Salazar,” is an art/science collaboration; a ‘full-dome’ projection at the Emera Astronomy Center, USMO. The paintings selected are part of the eleven in his solar series, accompanied by the video from the planetarium public shows. His “Solar Flares” e-pub, will be released in 2019; it calls public attention to our Sun, and the existential threat from solar warming; it is funded in part by a Media Project grant from the Maine Arts Commission.
“Land, Sea & Sky: Maine 2012-18” He writes: “I resided in Mexico over three decades bridging the 20th and 21st centuries. I returned to Maine in 2012 for personal reasons where I established as a goal for my paintings to seek to express Maine’s 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.”
