Salman Toor: No Ordinary Love @ Baltimore Museum of Art

“A violent change of scenery is good for painting,” Salman Toor told Juxtapoz in the Winter months leading up to his museum show, Salman Toor: No Ordinary Love, on view at the Baltimore Museum of Art through October 22, 2022. What is so profound about this statement is the intricate and insular world that Toor creates in his paintings and drawings. These are not violent places, but places that seem to be created and nurtured in order to get away from a violence. And that violence could be political, social or just personal, but here in Toor’s world, it’s getting okay to be who you really are.
