We did a hit and run with Richard Salcido in the past and it only left our readers salivating for more. Nonetheless, we ignored the spit. Truthfully, we didn’t see much in his work. We thought it to be a little incomplete.
Obviously we were out of our
fucking minds. We underestimated Salcido and passed his work off as simple social satire. We didn’t truly examine and praise his technique and his ability to capture raw unspoken emotion.
Salcido’s pieces pierce the soul. The eyes of his subject seems to reveal a story that they refuse to tell; stories of allure, defeat, disappointment and overall disinterest.
