JEAN-DANIEL SALVAT is a French Artist living in the South of France. He painted in Brooklyn N.Y. at the turn of the century.
EARLY WORK: “I paint on the reverse side of a transparent vinyl, then mounted on stretchers. Any tactile sign is, this way, erased from the work. No pictoral matter remains, just a smooth and shiny surface. I give the painting an ambiguous identity by intending it to work just as a facsimile of itself.
I deliberately focus on the production system of a painting, on the way it is perceived as an object. Nevertheless, without being reduced to a process, through different series, I want the work allowed to change indefinitely and open itself to any potentiality.”
New York, 1995
All work 2002: Acrylic modified on vinyl, 24″ x 20″ From the collection of Nancy Drew.
