Franco Salas Borquez Art

French, Chilean, b. 1979
Franco Salas Borquez’works depict the sea, the sole subject of his paintings. The artist paints the waves using an intuitive but rigorous hand to achieve the same degree of fluidity as the sea. Thus, his artworks, thanks to the effect of realism, reproduce the same sensation that comes from contemplating nature. His works are now exhibited in museums collections and in numerous international galleries and fairs. He received an award from Spain’s Institute for Maritime History and Culture in 2010, and another one from the Paris Marine Museum in 2011 and 2014. “The sea is ultimately a fairly limited subject, but I like to play with these limits, it fascinates me. It’s like a game of chess where the board has 24 pieces, but there are infinite possibilities of combinations.”

Le visage du vent
By Franco Salas Borquez
Located in STRASBOURG, FR
Franco Salas Borquez est né au Chili sur l’île de Chiloé en 1979. Insulaire de naissance, Franco Salas Borquez entretient un rapport étroit à la mer, puisque cet élément naturel s’est avéré être davantage qu’un paysage pour celui-ci. Issu d’une famille de marins qu’il a accompagné parfois en mer, il a fait l’expérience de la puissance des flots, dont la fascination autant que la crainte alimentent son désir de peinture. Il déclare : « J’étais fasciné par la peinture, et c’est comme peintre que je suis revenu à la mer. » Franco Salas Borquez considère la représentation de la mer comme un défis à relever sans cesse, il y dédie sa carrière mais il ne cherche pas toutefois à dévoiler la part de mystère que ces paysages renferment. Avec ses peintures, il parvient à dépasser le vertige réel dont on fait l’expérience en mer afin de créer un vertige d‘ordre esthétique dans sa pratique mais également au cours de la réception de ses œuvres. Franco Salas Borquez compare souvent le travail de peindre au jeu d’échec...
