Andrew Salgado claims his newest body of work, 'Nature Boy', developed as something of an accident: the works being created as an originally unrelated collection of paintings that began to take on a life of their own.
The small body of work is eponymously titled after Nat King Cole's 'Nature Boy' where the narrator speaks of meeting a mysterious visitor who tells him about love. Salgado was insistent that the show itself - like the 'accidental' paintings - should feel transient and temporary, as such, the show will open on a Fridayafternoon and close on Sunday evening. Salgado, who typically plays with spectacle and presentation, (including releasing 500 live butterflies at one opening, or installing an artificial beach with 8m projection of the ocean in another), promises another such flourish for those in attendance.
The show features 9 paintings and 3 works on paper, including his first-ever non-representational works.
