Based at BV Studios in Bristol, Rae is a visual artist working predominantly in paint. She makes work that explores colour and mark using the natural landscape around her as inspiration. Rae creates abstracted images that are ambiguous, analysing landscape. Painting mostly on wood panel, she uses the grain as a starting point for building up the surface; often integral to the piece.
She tries to achieve a balance in the work by finding a place where different marks, textures and colours sit together harmoniously - each piece she makes is a process of seeking this equilibrium, the depth of field draws the viewer in and invites them to engage with the work allowing them to interpret the work themselves.
