It is said that American artist David Salle helped define postmodern sensibility in art. This catalogue is published on the occasion of an exhibition at CAC Málaga showing 32 of his paintings, created between 1992 and the present day. Many are large-format works that reflect Salle’s characteristically rich pictorial language and numerous visual sources, which range from art history and design to advertising and pop culture. His realm of cultural and artistic references, not to mention his questioning of hierarchical and closed systems, however, often eludes the confines of classification through his process of selection and interruption, in turn generating different interpretations.
