Rebecca Salter RA

About The Artist

Rebecca Salter is currently living and working in London. Salter graduated from Bristol Polytechnic, Faculty of Art and Design in 1977. Salter was elected to Royal Academy of Arts in 2014. Salter lived and worked in Japan from 1981 to 1985 and before that was a research student at Kyoto City University of Arts, Japan, as part of her Leverhulme Scholarship. In response to this she published Japanese Woodblock Printing in 2001 and in 2006 published Japanese Popular Prints with A&C Black, University of Hawaii. The traditions of Japanese Woodblock Printing are an integral element of Salters practice.

In 2014 Salter took part in a residency in Lofoten, Norway. Between 2002 and 2011 Salter was a Research Fellow at Camberwell College of Arts. And from 1996 to 2016 Salter was an associate Lecturer on the MA Visual Arts at Camberwell College of Arts. In 2003 and again in 2011 she was Artist in Residence at Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Connecticut. In 1995 and 2003 she was awarded the Pollock-Krasner Foundation award.

Rebecca Salter is attracted to the visual sophistication of Japanese prints; the flat colour, the bold, cropped compositions and, above all, the fluidity of the lines are all evident influences on her minimal, abstract works. Her prints are made using traditional Japanese techniques, paper and cherry wood blocks. Salter has a close relationship with the Sato Woodblock Workshop in Kyoto, Japan and commissioned them to create her 2017 Summer Exhibition limited-edition print 'Rasa'. Salter intends to maintain this collaboration for future Summer Exhibitions and hopes to draw new audiences to the sophistication and complexity of the traditional Japanese prints.
