Still Life Collection
Salinas had a keen knowledge and love of history. Throughout his life, he read voraciously, observed continuously and intently studied artworks of all the world’s cultures: from pre-historic cave paintings to contemporary artists.
The with his extraordinary innate talents, he mastered a variety of techniques: drawing, painting, printing, photography.
His admiration and reverence for European artists from the 15th through the 20th Centuries lead him to concentrate on all forms of figurative painting. One of his favorite subjects was the Still Life.
The subtle interplay of chiaroscuro (light and shadow) on the rounded form of a piece of fruit or a flower petal captivated and inspired him to create masterful Still Life paintings.
