Rafael Francisco Salas’ recent work featured in online exhibit

Recent work by Associate Professor of Art Rafael Francisco Salas is being featured in the Week Six installment of “PSG on PAPER,” an online drawing exhibit of Portrait Society Gallery of Milwaukee.

“No other artist creates an atmosphere of contemplation as well as Salas,” a gallery spokesman states. “His drawings and paintings embrace deep histories while staying rooted in a specific present, both conceptually and physically. This new body of corona-era drawings even more lavishly refers to Daumier, Dürer, Goya and German photographer August Sander. Salas applies the underpinnings of classical art — its formal finesse, drama, emotion — as an overlay to the severely underrepresented monumentality of rural Wisconsin.”
