Display caption

Salter spent five years in Japan in the early 1980s where she developed an interest in and an understanding of paper, texture and colour. Woodcut is the traditional Japanese method of making prints. In this set of prints Salter achieves a sensitive balance of colour and texture creating delicate, ghost images in interpenetrating planes. The motifs appear to be suspended within the paper itself. Her work as a painter is based on a method of layering and rubbing away paint, pastels and graphite to achieve a flat and unified grid of marks.
