Artist of the moment……..Fiona Rae

 

Fiona Rae was born in Hong Kong in the year 1963. Rae was one of the group of painters called the Young British Artists that came to international fame and prominence after a show curated by Damien Hirst in 1988. Ian Davenport, a recent post was also a member of this group. Fiona Rae is an abstract painter.

Fiona attended the Craydon College of Art before switching to Goldsmith’s College located in London, England where she earned a B.F.A.

Rae was elected to the Royal Academy.

Rae was nominated for the Turner Prize.

In this clip we make a trip to the studio of Fiona Rae:

 

Rae is part of many prestigious collections including the Corcoran Gallery of Art located in Washington D. C., the Tate Modern located in London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art located in Nimes, France.

Price range information: Prints can start around $5,000 and originals reach as high as $75,000.

I love Rae’s use of colour!
