With distinct, exuberant use of colour, Salgado’s paintings often centre on the male figure coalescing with objects, forms, and animal life. The characters unveiled in each piece, including the artist himself in Lotus Eater, all exist somewhere along this cross-section of fantasy, myth, and reality. Surrounded by alluring flowers, dazzling fruits, and fluttering birds and butterflies, the works lead us into a dream-like state. Yet it is juxtaposed with an indescribable freneticism and joy, invoking a full consciousness of reality.
