Portland-based but California-bred artist Souther Salazar’s installations transport the viewer into a vibrant and endless world of overlapping drawn, painted, sculpted and animated narratives and dreamscapes—half-remembered, half-imagined places where stories can develop and take on a life of their own. Utilizing a variety of mixed media, found objects and layers of assemblage, his work evokes the wonders and imagination that many of us abandoned in childhood.
