David Salle (American)
Born 1952, Norman, OK
Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY
David Salle is a painter and printmaker who helped define the American postmodern sensibility in the 1980’s. Salle earned a BFA and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, where he studied with world-renown POP/Conceptual artitst John Baldessari. Salle’s figurative paintings and prints are composed of what appear to be randomly juxtaposed images, or images placed on top of one another deliberately, thus challenging the viewer to assemble a personalized response.
Major exhibitions of David Salle’s work have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
