About David SalleView Profile »
David Salle (American, b. 1952) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Salle is an American painter who helped define postmodern sensibility by combining figuration with a varied pictorial language of multi-imagery. His earliest work involved the strategy of overlaying images, and this quickly became his signature style. Salle’s paintings reflect a collage aesthetic, whereby he takes images out of their original context and re-contextualizes them into complex ensembles. Salle is known for mixing modes of representation and appropriated ready-made motifs in a single canvas, suggesting but defying any legible narrative. Employing the postmodern technique of pastiche, where the close display of disparate images and styles tends to reduce everything to equivalent signs, Salle’s paintings function as metaphors for the dizzying onslaught of media culture. Major exhibitions of his work have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.Interested in consigning works by David Salle?
