Jesus Salas (b. 1991)

Daily, Jesus Salas documents the interior of the bus that brings him to Art Center in graphite and sometimes marker on a found sheet of paper. Less frequently, and on the flip side of the page, he captures the exterior of the bus.

And recently, he has begin to create paintings that often sport a minimalist field that is covered atop with the numbers one to one hundred. Often the numerals become unclear or blurred due Salas’ hurried layering.

Both bodies of work are Salas’ response at attempts to record and order his environment.
