Salvador, in his body of work, infuses his interest for the human figure and the use of symbolic structures to create a pictorial bridge that is imbued in his subconscious world and the physical environment that surrounds him.
The evolution of his work integrates a constant search for portrayals of a perceived inward reality that conjures up a wide mosaic of ostensible visual subjects that lurk in the penumbra of the subconscious.
Eclectic emblems and primordial landscapes are in essence the amalgam of the seen and the unseen that marry into a surrealistic composition, which in turn provokes viewers’ interest and curiosity.
This ritual, Salvador believes, prompts the emergence of mental impressions and emotions on the canvas that, at times, resonate with a touch of the “whimsical” and the “playful” thus promoting an extraordinary fluency of images replete with “thought-images” that are free from dogmatic prejudices and presumptions. Salvador deliberately selects segments and passages of the human existence as icons for his paintings whereby vortices of expressions are molded onto the canvas predestined to depict a situational framework.
