'Quarry Edge' - A signed, limited edition silkscreen print with metallic ink and glazes by Barbara Rae.
'Quarry Edge' and 'Red Sky' reflet Rae's skill at manipulating form and colour, and re-affirm her incredible gift as a colourist. Though both pieces are inspired by specific features in the landscape, Rae uses them merely as departure points for a flight of colour and sweeping primordial shapes. Rae uses soft washes of bold colour, merging form, line and hue delicately into each other. She contrasts this gentle handling with dynamic composition; breaking up the picture surface with thrusting vertical and horizontal lines. The works vibrate with a pervasive energy, drawing the viewer in to Rae's vision.
