About David Salle

Painter David Salle (American, b. 1952) helped define postmodern sensibility by combining figuration with a pictorial language of imagery. His earliest work involved the strategic overlay of images, which quickly became his signature style. He is known for mixing modes of representation and appropriated ready-made motifs in a single canvas, suggesting, but defying any legible narrative. Employing the postmodern technique of pastiche, where the close display of disparate images and styles tends to reduce everything to equivalent signs, Salle’s paintings function as metaphors for the dizzying onslaught of media culture. Major exhibitions of his work have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
