Rafael Salas – Ripon, Wisconsin

Our newest acquisition comes from Rafael Salas, a Wisconsin-based painter, from Ripon. We were first introduced to his work back in 2007 in Milwaukee. We reconnected a couple years later. We found the interplay between realism and abstraction quite captivating. 

Our two acquisitions are studies for paintings called Untitled Interior (Funeral), Untitled (House), Untitled Interior (Living Room), Abstraction Study #1, and Abstraction Study #2.

You can view these paintings at rafaelsalas.com.
