Daily, Jesus Salas documents the interior of the bus that brings him to NIAD Art Center in graphite and sometimes marker on found sheets of paper. Less frequently, on the flip side of the page, he captures the exterior of the bus.
Recently he has begin to create paintings with a minimalist field overlaid with numbers 1 to 100. Often the numerals become unclear or blurred due Salas’s hurried layering.
Both bodies of work represent Salas’s efforts to record and order his environment.
