Statement

Fiona Rae is a British artist and one of the Young British Artists (YBAs). She is a painter. Her work is abstract, and makes a Postmodern use of a seemingly random assemblage of painterly applications in order to create new and unexpected juxtapositions on the canvas. It is a cool and much more cerebral version of Abstract Expressionism.

She was one of the artists in the seminal Freeze exhibition curated by Damien Hirst in 1988. Her work was subsequently bought by Charles Saatchi and shown in the major 1997 Sensation exhibition, which brought Britart into the establishment, as it was hosted by the Royal Academy, London, before touring abroad. Rae is now a Royal Academician and also a Trustee of the Tate Gallery.
