Rebecca Salter: Into the light of things
Library Shelf Location 18.SALT
Publication Date 2011
Description Rebecca Salter describes herself as an abstract artist and yet her work draws deeply on the experience of landscape, principally through annual visits to the English Lake District but also in Japan, and at the Joseph Albers Foundation in Bethany, Connecticut. In contrast to the work of Andy Goldsworthy or Richard Long, she leaves no mark on the landscape, returning to her metropolitan studio to distill the experiences recorded in her sketchbooks into profoundly mediated paintings, prints, and drawings. Accompanying an exhibition of the full range of her creative output at the Yale Center for British Art, this gorgeous book explores Salter's work in the context of international Abstraction, and in relation to her experience of Japanese artistic practices, aesthetics, and ideas of space. Richard Cork focuses on the soothing and sensitive nature of her commission for the entrance hall of St George's Hospital, London, where a softly glowing, horizontal glass panel emits an ever-changing sequence of colours.
