Ken Salaz: On Walden Pond

Published July 13, 2021

Galerie d’Orsay is holding a new exhibition of works by ARC Living Master Ken Salaz, celebrating the serenity and sublime beauty of Walden Pond. The exhibition opens to the public on July 15th at 33 Newbury Street, Boston MA and will be on view through August 5th.  Artist reception on Saturday July 24th from 5 - 7pm. 

Ken Salaz’s landscape paintings show us a diverse flexibility of expression. Salaz believes the earth is a gift and this reverence for nature is deeply ingrained in his Native American heritage. His artistic background in traditional Old Master techniques combined with his strong spiritual connection with the land he paints lays the groundwork for a powerful poetic dualism. Salaz offers the viewer a way of experiencing Nature that is full of gratitude — the world around us is truly a place to rejoice. He shares his unique vision of Walden Pond in this summer collection, and it is irresistible in its sincerity.

“I feel it is imperative to the world and humanity today to create without apology artwork that strives toward harmony, truth, and beauty. To obtain this, I approach each canvas with the Heart of a Poet, the Mind of a Philosopher, the Hands of a Surgeon, and the Vision of an Eagle.”
– Ken Salaz
