Samuel Salcedo

Samuel Salcedo's work helps us to approach the more absurd, cruel and crude side of human existence. Eliminating the contextual elements from his paintings and sculptures, that is to say, abstracting the subjects from their cultural surroundings. Salcedo illuminates all of our best kept secrets. When we lower our defenses and allow ourselves to follow the rules of desire, when we begin to forget what we have learned, when norms and behavioral conditioning vanish and we decide to undress and start skipping on top of an upturned basin – in that moment Salcedo lights a lamb for us which illuminates everything clearly.
