Rebecca Salter

Pale Remembered
5 November - 5 December 2009on

The book which accompanies this exhibition of Rebecca’s recent work includes poems by Anthony Anaxagorou.

‘I heard the actor Damian Lewis read Anthony’s poem – Himself – on BBC TV’s Newsnight.  In barely five lines, Anthony draws a spare yet elegant comment on his world.  I had never thought of attempting to introduce poetry to painting … but a studio visit and long conversation led to the inclusion of eight of his poems.  They are not ‘about’ the work.  They are, some of them, his reflections; a genuinely chance encounter.’
