Mason Saltarrelli creates hypnotic paintings and drawings using a deliberately restrained hand. His limited palette, subtle mark making techniques and abstracted forms impart a “less is more” aesthetic and leave viewers in charge of filling in the gaps. Recognizable imagery dissolves into deceptively simple painted lines, bursts of color and repetitive hash marks to create blurred renderings of repeating themes and subjects.
Saltarrelli has had solo exhibitions at Turn Gallery (NYC), Randall Scott Projects (Washington DC) and Outeast Gallery (Montauk, NY); and has been included in group shows at Feuer Mesler (NYC), Interstate Projects (Brooklyn), Moran Bondaroff (Los Angeles), Geukens and De Vil (Belgium), Gallery Steinsland Berliner (Stockholm) and Galleri Tom Christoffersen (Copenhagen).
