Burden was painted in 2014 and formed part of Andrew Salgado’s exhibition entitled: ‘Enjoy the Silence’. This work was quintessentially different from the rest of the eight works in the show, as it featured a faceless subject holding a bouquet of flowers. Burden was a source of inspiration, a precursor that led to his renowned still life genre, released in 2017. Salgado brings a vibrancy and sensuality to the genre, giving it a fresh approach.
