Tabitha Salmon is a widely-acclaimed artist working in the figurative tradition whose paintings are remarkable for their colour, energy and impact. Private collectors and public and commercial institutions consider her to be one of the outstanding British artists of her generation. Tabitha was born in 1955 in Kent, studied at Brighton and Camberwell Colleges of Art, and has been a professional painter for thirty years. During this time she has become much-travelled, an artist who responds with characteristic enthusiasm to new places and cultures. She is always drawing, and develops her images using multi-disciplinary media - oils, watercolours, gouache, oil pastel and gold leaf. Wherever she has been travelling, the sketches and studies made on the spot are brought home to her London studio. There Tabitha can contemplate the material with total freedom and make it her own: “Putting all that distance between you and a place,” she says “...it does become like a dream, a sort of vision”. All of this rich artistic experience has provided Tabitha with a catalogue of themes and a formidable body of work which she now draws on for more personal and iconic images. She says she is happiest when she can “revisit places in my mind’s eye... that’s what I find very liberating...”. All dimensions are Height x Width and are approximate.

WHAT IS ARTGLASS?
Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.
For Tabitha's prints we feel this reflection not only dulls the images, but hides the brush stoke detail that is a major part of Tabitha's work. We therefore fit all Tabitha's prints with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This image has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the print. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.
