ARTIST INFO

 

About  

 

Salvatore’s work deals with perceptions of time, memory and place. He makes paintings that depict often overlooked sections of suburbia, edgelands and semi/rural landscapes reminiscent of faded snapshots. Creeping shadows and spectral forms denote odd or uncanny scenes, like recollected memories or nostalgic day dreams.  
 
Salvatore graduated with an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 2000. He lives and works in London.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork    

 

The submitted postcard works are studies for possible future paintings. Both images were taken during a recent trip to Blenheim Palace. ‘Pale House’ features an out building on the grounds that had undergone recent restoration work. The unusually clean façade took on an ephemeral ghost like appearance, this along with the walled perimeter and falling shadows helped conjure a sense of the uncanny which drew me in. The second painting; ‘Cloud Lake’ features a view of the artificial lake created by Capability Brown in the 1760s. The foreboding sky and dark silhouetted tree line reminded me of earlier oil sketch landscapes painted during the era.
