> DESCRIPTION

Timothy Taylor Gallery is delighted to announce its third solo exhibition by British artist Fiona Rae.

These new large paintings, all 2012, share multifarious and interwoven techniques, patterns and passages that ebb and flow across their surfaces, but have quite different visual outcomes.

I need gentle conversations and I always wish you every happiness with my whole heart in the distance have a pared down aesthetic; the overall ground colour is threaded with motifs reminiscent of the hanging gardens found in classical Chinese landscape painting, and the effect is one of extraordinary lightness and delicacy.

The sun throws my sorrow away and Present party for you are animated by painterly swirls and flourishes over veils of dripped and poured paint, while Something is about to happen! depicts the aftermath of a violent painterly battle as an electrifying form explodes on the canvas like a firework display.

Close examination of the paintings reveals fascinating small details and incidents like conversational digressions, such as the mathematical and astronomical symbols that dance across these paintings, reminiscent of those found in Dürer’s star charts from the 16th century.
