RS exhibition text one by one

"Salter seems as if to have painted silence itself: the work is both alive and moving, and yet still, so that the eye wanders, absorbed and yet patternless, through and among the shapes before us. There is nothing to say, nothing even to experience in any words that sound impressive, yet the looking never wearies. This is a rough image, in its very imagelessness, of the bliss of silence." (Meditations on Silence by Sister Wendy Beckett)

"An organizing principle underlies my work but is disrupted by the serendipity of the process of making/drawing/painting. The trace of the human hand is paramount and its presence energises the surface, subtly disturbing an underlying calm but providing an opportunity to linger and explore. The work asks for time, and rewards with an opportunity for inner reflection.“ (Rebecca Salter)
