Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas 48×60″ created in 2006.
Review by Craig Star: Ahhh!!! What joy to see the work of an artist that can infuse life and art with such joy, power and excitement. The elements in joyful balance dance blithely across the canvas as if to a rhythmic tune. The black forms linear directional quality (expressed like in a drawing at times) hold the eye on the field and help the eye move from form to fascinating form. One of the most intriguing elements is the whole moon like figure in the upper left hand corner of the work. As it is not engaged with the black linear style, it creates a sense of distance as if it were the real moon and all the other elements were actively engaged in their various activities separately from the distant “moon” or sun form. The light blue field, that the elements delight upon, creates a lovely negative space that flows in and out of the composition and contrasts nicely with the stimulated black and energetically drafted forms. This blue field gives the eye time and space to move to another element. The “air” created by the blue field allows the forms to float and allows each element to have it’s own little tiny exhibition within the whole (the greater drama unfolding before us). Again, Mr. Salvatore shares with us his love of art to our great delight. Thank you Wayne!
