Matthew Domenic Salvo



Artist Statement

Recent works of Matthew Domenic Salvo explore aspects of modern industrialization and the impacts it imposes on nature and humanity. Salvo’s imagery contemplates the complexities and sometimes grotesque relationship between the industrial world and modern technologies that we humans create and destroy within our social and ecological environments. Focusing strongly on generating impulsive gestural mark making and multi-layered surfaces within his work, Salvo is able to illuminate these ideas of the industrial vs nature and the effects its creates in an interpretive and expressive way.
