Souther Salazar Solo Exhibition
Saturday, March 28th 2015
Artist will be in attendance
The work for this show came to me in fragments, written and doodled while living in Scrapper’s Attic. In the beginning I made piles of small drawings and notes. Each day I’d add a little more, or chop some of them up, creating patterns and possibilities for the future. Eventually, these particles of drawings grew and connected into larger systems, intuitively finding their way together and collectively becoming the final art piece. These are the attic transmissions.

About Souther Salazar (USA)
Souther Salazar was born in 1978 in Hayward, California and is currently based in Portland, Oregon. In 2003, he received a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He utilizes mixed media, found objects and collaged layers of assemblage in his paintings, drawings and sculptures. Salazar creates densely-layered universes that offer aspirational spaces for dreaming, thinking and being. Salazar’s work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Basel, Tokyo and São Paulo and included at exhibitions in institutions such as the Riverside Art Museum and the Japanese American National Museum, both in California. He also conceived and led The Trading Tortoise, a year long travelling community art project in 2013.
