"For my purposes, Myth represents a realization, depicted through symbols which through force and awe, conjure the same realization in the viewer. To use the natural to represent the supernatural, and thereby realize all levels of reality, most importantly mystery." - Rebecca Rebouche
This body of work is presented by Saladino Gallery, and was revealed on November 29 at a private opening in the artist's studio. The remaining paintings have been made available for purchase in the "shop" section of this website, but please note that the prices do not include shipping, which will be arranged separately with the gallery, and due to the size of some pieces, can be quite considerable. Any paintings that do not appear in the Shop section have been sold. For questions regarding availability, framing, delivery or installation, please contact dannysaladino[at]gmail.com.
A Collection made in Spring 2013, inspired by wanderlust, sure heart, and a free spirit.
A Collection of paintings made while on a month-long naturalist journey across the American South, based on the characters and themes in Southern Gothic literature as written by William Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Walker Percy, Tennessee Williams, and others.
Art that takes care of you and rebuilds you from the inside out.
Not all artworks fall under a Collection title, and so they are listed here.
These heirloom pieces, created on commission, are painted specifically for individual families. I meet with a family and get to know what makes them unique, what their life-philosophies are, and what traditions they have. I then go back to my studio and come up with a tree painting composition that will represent that family. I search for an overarching metaphor, and visually rich details that will come together to make a portrait of people who share a home. There is a waiting list for Family Tree Paintings, so if you are interested, please let us know so we can put you on the list.
A journey from a remembered birth to an imagined death using all five senses.
Portraits of the artist by Brady Fontenot
When I first started my career as an artist, I took to the road, gypsy style, showing at art markets and festivals around the country. I would load the truck with paintings and drive to each show and set up a tent and sell. When I ran out of paintings, I would stop at motels and state parks and set up a temporary studio, and make enough paintings to take to the next town. As a young girl I always wanted to be in the circus. This was my real life way of being a circus girl.
