Collection: Amaya Salazar

Amaya Salazar (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 1951) is a Dominican artist known for her faceless characters that inhabit mystical and magical environments where light and Antillean flora are present.

Amaya Salazar studied at the Artium Academy, Madrid, Spain and at the School of Fine Arts, Boston, United States.2​

Salazar is primarily inspired by the female form and images of mother and child. Capture those intimate moments where women escape the reality of life and enter the warmth of the Caribbean light

Light and flora play an important role in Salazar's work. In his work, the rays of the sun and moon create a kaleidoscope of tones throughout the landscape. In night landscapes, the palette becomes dark almost black, but there is always an inner light that shines. His brightest works give us the different hues that the sun creates as it warms the landscape. Flora is an integral part of Salazar's work. Banana leaves, palm trees, bamboo trunks are part of the environment that surrounds the characters; In some cases they are the only element of the piece.

Salazar also works in bronze, steel, and marble, as well as creating charcoal drawings on paper and watercolors and India ink on paper.

His work can be found in major collections around the world.
