"Skies Above Canaveral"
Loren Salazar - Extended Exhibit
Loren Salazar
June 10, 2009 - July 5, 2009
6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

This body of new work is an extension of a direction that Salazar started in the early 1990's as a means of confronting the changes wrought by a coming digital environment. His goal was to produce artwork using reflective effects on an aluminum ground as a means of transcending our new digital representation. He wanted to create a permanent, archival quality object that blurs the meaning of painting and sculpture in a way that cannot be recorded digitally. An artwork with qualities that can only be experienced from the original, that changes relative to the viewers perspective, and defies two dimensional space.
