Barbara Rae has a long association with Peacock Visual Arts. She is a highly acclaimed painter and printmaker and her abstract works affirm her incredible gift as a colourist.Her works are often inspired by specific places which she uses as departure points for a flight of colour and sweeping compositions. 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.
