John Salt, 2011
John Salt (b. 1937, Birmingham, England) is a British artist who earned his M.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art. Salt’s focus is on the rural American landscape, often in various stages of decline. These works have a solemn and haunting quality. He employs a painting technique unique among the Photorealists of spraying the paint through stencils onto the canvas. Salt has exhibited widely since the 1960s and after twenty years in New York City, has returned to England where he currently lives and paints.
