Published by Karma, New York. Foreword and interview by Peter Doroshenko.
Debris assembles paintings and ceramics made by American artist David Salle (born 1952) over the past five years. Regarded as one of the originators of postmodernism in painting, Salle employs his recognizable style of juxtaposition and visual simultaneity in these most recent works. A number of paintings make use of highly abstracted photographic silk-screens that reveal, upon closer inspection, tightly cropped tangles of wire and wood washed up on a beach near the artist’s Long Island home. Though Salle has often affixed ceramic objects to the canvas in the past, here the smashed or collapsed vessel and platter shapes begin for the first time to take on the agency and autonomy of independent art objects. Including an interview with the artist, this elegant volume is a tribute to Salle’s merging of figurative tradition with abstraction, and to the dialogue he creates between disparate elements.

In the 1980s, American artist David Salle (born 1952) played a crucial role in the formulation of postmodernism in art, helping to reestablish painting as a dominant force. Often thought to use only found imagery, Salle actually derived much of his early work from live movement events that he staged specifically for the paintings. For his 1992 series Ghost Paintings, Salle took photographs of his longtime model Beverly Eaby, creating graceful, improvised movements with a bedsheet, then printing the images on linen and painting over them with horizontal fields of intense color. This new volume, with full-color spreads of the 16 never-before-seen Ghost Paintings, reveals Salle’s practice of incorporating photography and performance art into his paintings. It includes the black-and-white photographs the artist took for this series, as well as documentation of other performances.

This catalogue examines David Salle's recent Pastoral series, the central focus of which is a seemingly generic scene of two tentative lovers done in the classical style. Using this scene as a basis, Salle floats images which are painted, silk-screened or drawn, on the same canvas, on adjacent panels, or inserted as separate canvases into the painting's surface.
