Rebecca Salter RA conveys the sheer excitement of Japanese woodblock printing as an artistic practice in this print from 2015. Salter studied and lived in Kyoto for six years; her study of traditional Japanese woodblock printing with Professor Kurosaki Akira has profoundly influenced her practice ever since.
This woodblock print is based on a series of drawings by Salter which she then cut, reassembled, carved and finally printed. The resulting image is quiet and considered, with the weaving sense of movement and repetition which characterises Salter’s work.
Salter exhibits regularly in London and internationally. She has also completed several architectural commissions, including at 15 Sackville Street, and at St George’s Hospital, both in London.
