“Sam Salisbury's paintings and drawings vary from highly detailed images of men and women in strange uncanny situations to more ambiguous works that include both representational and abstract elements. Exploring various techniques and methods of painting and drawing, Salisbury uses unusual color
combinations and creates extremely stylized renderings of the human figure. He uses images from the mass media as well as his own photographs and films to create composite figures, with the men usually small, bearded, and reminiscent of the hippies of the late -1960s and 1970s, and the women presented as towering, excessively glamorous, fashion-model types. These figures often appear in natural settings and their relationships are undefined, prompting viewer to draw their own conclusions or form their own narrative. The psychologically complex relationship between the sexes in these works recalls the paintings of John Currin and the comic art of R. Crumb”.
