Art Brokerage: David Salle American Artist: b.1952. Salle is an American painter, draughtsman and printmaker. He studied under John Baldessari and others at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA (1973-5). After producing performances and installations in the late 1970s he began in 1979 to make paintings in which he overlaid images in different styles based on found sources, as in The Flesh Made Word (1979; Rotterdam, Boymans-van Beuningen). Although he acknowledged the example of the Transparencies series painted in the late 1920s and 1930s by Picabia, a more immediate point of comparison for works such as Good Bye D. (1982; Richmond, VA, Mus. F. A.) Listings wanted.
