Fiona Rae

Fiona Rae's bold works evolve from the loosest of blueprints, making the flexibility of oils central to her process. Via the The Observer she says.....

What I love about painting is that it embodies a series of thought and feeling processes. It's all there on the canvas as a record. I can put something on the canvas, consider it, adjust it, remove it, replace it, add to it, conceal it, reveal it, destroy it and repair it. I can be in a good mood, a bad mood, a cheerful mood or a destructive mood - it's all useful.

I came across this video of her in her studio, I love when artists talk about their practice with such conviction and passion.
