Salvador Campos Featured Artist Reception

Found object sculpture and painting!

Artist Statement:
I am a self-taught artist. For the past 20 years I have worked with found objects to create sculptures, assemblages, figures, masks and collages. I aim to stimulate the viewer’s perceptual awareness of the beauty and value in the ordinary and to encourage creative imagination regarding reuse of materials in the hope that they will discard less and recycle more.
In their scarred, bent, broken and crushed condition these pieces tell stories of the city. They represent cycles of life in the city. Each piece contains not only a unique history but potential for aesthetic function. I strive for that moment of recognition when the viewer not only sees the individual parts but the whole thing at the same time.
