DescriptionSALUSTIANO (Spanish, b. 1965)
Renaissance Number 2
Natural pigments and acrylic resin on canvas laid on plywood
47 x 47 inches (119.4 x 119.4 cm)
Signed lower right: Salustiano
"Salustiano succeeds in eliminating any reference to time or place in his works, leaving the crimson youth to speak for themselves. This results in paintings that do not remind the viewer of anything, essentially leaving one without any anchor or cognitive framework with which to label them...The viewer projects his or her own lived experiences onto the painted faces, faces that sometimes portray a severeness, sometimes a remoteness, but always an irony within the lifelike eyes...for every torso stripped of external meaning, there is a quaint smile that hearkens back to classicism or a pair of cupid bow lips reminiscent of the Renaissance."
