Description

This wonderful print, was published by Ediciones Poligrafa, in Barcelona, Spain. The colors are stunning, and this print is typical of the perfectionist work that Poligrafa is known for. This print is from the edition of only 75, and measures 20 x 14" (50 x 35cm). It is absolutely mint.


He 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.”


The work of Baruj Salinas can be found in over 35 significant, permanent museum collection worldwide. He has had over 100 solo shows.
