Salazar to Show “Innovative Techniques” at the Maine Jewish Museum (MJM) from May 16th to July 5th 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,” was projected during Nov. ’19 on the Dome of the planetarium at Emera Astronomy Center, USMO. This unique video preceded the showing of “Solar Superstorms;” it incorporates art and science in a bold way which highlights connections of our natural world with artistic interpretation. Salazar’s paintings selected for the MJM exhibition are from his Solar Flares series, accompanied by the video produced for the Emera planetarium public shows, November 2019.
“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.”
“Solar Flares and Salazar” an e-pub, will be released in June 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, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment of the Arts. The e-pub documents Salazar’s 11 Solar Flare paintings, accompanied by NASA images; See the artist’s website.
