Artwork description

Rebecca Salter RA’s distinctive prints utilise traditional Japanese woodblock printmaking techniques to create subtle, light-filled imagery.
Salter became interested in the traditional techniques of Japanese woodblock having lived and studied printmaking in Kyoto, Japan. She says; ‘I have a passion for Japanese art and especially for woodblock prints, a printing technique using, traditionally, Japanese paper, cherry wood and water-based inks.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
