The work of Rebecca Salter draws on a variety of artistic styles, media, and cultural traditions. Her distinctive approach was shaped primarily by the six years she spent in Kyoto, Japan, in the early 1980s, where she studied ceramics. She returned to her native London with a commitment to two-dimensional art and a particular interest in Japanese printmaking techniques and the subtle textures and surfaces of Japanese papers. In the late 1980s, however, she also began to make regular visits to the Lake District in northern England, taking inspiration from the austere landscape and ever-shifting weather conditions. Working within a tight tonal range and rarely letting one part of the canvas speak louder than any other, Salter’s paintings are nonetheless quietly compelling: a suitable match for the architecture of Louis Kahn (designer of the Yale Center for British Art), in whose memory this painting was purchased.
