Barbara Rae is an established printmaker currently based in Scotland. Her work ranges from screenprints to etchings to large scale prints painted over for more texture. Rae uses washes of bold colour; merging form, line and hue into each other with dynamic composition, breaking up the picture surface with thrusting lines. The works draw the viewer into the artist’s vision, emitting energy and warmth. Rae rejects the term “landscape painter” because the patterns and items left behind as traces of human presence are her prime interest.
