Horacio Salinas' still life photography

I can’t explain exactly why the art of Horacio Salinas strikes me, but I like it. Maybe it’s the fact that sometimes he can take everyday, mundane objects, assemble them abstractly and create some really stunning art. And other times, like above, he takes very un-mundane objects and de-mystifies them, debases them into the mundane. A million dollar piece of jewelry becomes a sparkling eyeball, a decapitated duck head and flour tortilla become a smug observer, a haute couture high heel becomes a hairpiece. He considers himself a still life photographer, but it seems to me his art is more hinged on sculpture, or at least installation. The New York-based Salinas has had his work published in GQ, Vogue, The New York Times and other top magazines.
