Opening


Rebecca Slater [Artist, President RA] - Threading the Line

ARTUNER presents 'Threading the Line', an exhibition of works by Rebecca SalterP.R.A., recently appointedthe first female President of the Royal Academy.

The exhibition takes place at Gurr Johns’ new gallery space on Pall Mall and will showcase paintings from the 2000s through to new works, most of which have never previously been seen in public.

Found at the intersection between Western and Japanese traditions, Rebecca Salter’s practice seeks to bridge a gap between two fundamentally different conceptions of art.

Rather than perceiving the painted canvas as a surface, or a window on a scene, the artist creates a full-bodied object, where the hierarchy between front and back is often subverted, by means of seeping ink, pierced holes, and burn marks.

In her paintings and drawings, Salter applies notions of mark-making that, traditionally, pertain to calligraphy. She revisits the great Romantic tradition of landscape and weather painting through the use of the line,rather than colour.
