TateShots: David Salle by Tate




TateShots: David Salle


'A good painting', says American artist David Salle, 'has immediate impact, but rewards a longer viewing time'. From his New York studio David Salle talks about the combination of images and pictorial languages that go into one of his multi-layered paintings; and explains how his interest in exploring the body in space has led him to paint the bodies of his models and have them physically lifted onto his canvases to leave an imprint.
