Salle received his BFA and MFA from California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, California in 1973 and 1975 respectively. His work is amongst the museum collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, New York; the Guggenheim Museum, New York City, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City, New York and the Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam. Reviews of his work have been in many prestigious magazines including Art in America, Arts Magazine, Art Monthly and Artforum. Low and Narrow exhibits the layering of images so commonly found in Salle?s works. His method of combining high art and low art imagery lends ambiguity to his pieces. One can recognize the influence that Robert Rauschenberg has had on David Salle when you consider the layering of images and subject matter in this work.
