Press release

The Buchmann Galerie is delighted to present a solo show with new works by British painter Fiona Rae (*1963 in Hong Kong, lives in London).

 

In the last 25 years Fiona Rae has created an impressively diverse œuvre, exploring and expanding abstract painting in her own distinctive and original way.

 

When talking about her work, she often says she is more interested in the process of painting than in the finished image. This makes perfect sense when we visualize her various groups of work. Rae succeeds repeatedly in developing fresh starting points, out of which the next set of ideas can then evolve. Over the years, six or seven series of paintings have emerged in this way.

 

The paintings in this exhibition provide an insight into the most recent group of works by Fiona Rae, begun in 2014 with a number of charcoal drawings. These drawings were presented in the Buchmann Box in autumn 2014. It is fascinating to be able to see the path the artist has followed since then.

 

All the large paintings have a narrow vertical format, seldom used before by Rae, and measure 183 x 129.5 cm. This makes it possible for the painter to maintain control over the entire canvas from a single standpoint; she is able to cover the whole canvas with one sweep of a brush.

 

The intense calligraphic lines radiate with the same force from the canvas as we find in the drawings. They seem spontaneous and yet at the same time placed with discipline and precision. In a comparable way to the works on paper, the new paintings also seem to have evolved in one energetic spell of activity; they have very few overpainted areas. Accordingly, Rae works on only one painting at a time, in contradistinction to earlier series where paintings would often be developed simultaneously.

 

Another definitive difference from all the other groups of works to date is the exclusive use of black, white and grey in several works. The reduction of the colour palette brings an almost liberating effect, creating a new concentration and dynamism in the constellation of figure and ground, surface and line. It is interesting that Rae, after producing an initial group of greyscale paintings, has proceeded to re-introduce colour in parallel with this approach, albeit with colours that are far more restrained than in many previous paintings. Despite these changes, Fiona Rae’s signature remains clearly recognizable in these new works, evidence of the many visual codes and tropes she has developed and made her own over the years.

 

As regards the titles for the new paintings, the painter has again decided in favour of a novel approach. After having given poetic titles to the paintings in the previous series, such as Maybe you can live on the moon in the next century or The very once-in-a-lifetime moment, Rae now uses a taxonomic system for the new paintings: Figure 1a, Figure 1b, etc. In this way she creates a distance between the painting and the title, enabling us to concentrate on contemplating the pure painting.

 

These new paintings make clear what Fiona Rae means when she says: “I see these paintings as suggesting the presence of a figure, whilst simultaneously insisting on its absence; the paintings remain abstract. I want the urgency of paint marks and gestures made only by the hand; the need to make a mark that goes back thousands of years.”

 

Works by Fiona Rae are represented in numerous public collections, amongst them the Tate Collection UK, the Centre Pompidou Paris, the Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, the Hirshhorn Museum Washington D.C. and the Mudam Luxembourg.

Pressemitteilung

Die Buchmann Galerie freut sich, eine Einzelausstellung mit neuen Arbeiten der britischen Malerin Fiona Rae (*1963 in Hongkong, lebt in London) zu präsentieren.

 

Fiona Rae hat in den letzten 25 Jahren ein beeindruckend vielfältiges Werk geschaffen, das die abstrakte Malerei auf ganz unterschiedliche und eigenständige Weise ausgelotet und erweitert hat.

 

Spricht sie über ihre Arbeit, sagt sie oft, eher an dem Prozess des Malens, als an dem fertigen Bild interessiert zu sein. Führt man sich die unterschiedlichen Werkgruppen vor Augen, ist das schlüssig. Immer wieder gelingt es Rae, ihre Malerei auf einen neuen Ansatzpunkt hin zu entwickeln, von dem aus eine weitere Werkgruppe entsteht. Über die Jahre sind auf diese Weise zwischen sechs und sieben Gruppen entstanden. 

 

Die Bilder in der Ausstellung geben erstmals einen Einblick in die neueste Werkgruppe von Fiona Rae, die 2014 mit einer Reihe von Kohlezeichnungen ihren Anfang nahm. Die Kohlezeichnungen wurden im Herbst 2014 in der Buchmann Box präsentiert. Entsprechend interessant ist zu sehen, welchen weiteren Weg die Künstlerin seither gegangen ist. 

 

Die neuen größeren Bilder haben alle ein schlankes vertikales Format von 183 cm x 129,5 cm, das Rae bislang selten verwendet hat. Damit ist es der Malerin möglich, von nur einem Standpunkt aus die gesamte Fläche der Leinwand zu kontrollieren. Sie könnte mit nur einem Pinselschwung die ganze Leinwand überziehen. 

 

Die Intensität der kalligrafischen Linien auf der Leinwand hat die gleiche Kraft wie in den Zeichnungen. Sie wirken spontan und gleichzeitig auch kontrolliert und präzise gesetzt. Vergleichbar mit den Papierarbeiten haben die neuen Bilder zudem kaum übermalte Partien, sondern scheinen in einem energetischen Zug entstanden zu sein. Fiona Rae arbeitet entsprechend an jeweils immer nur einem Bild. Das ist ein ganz anderer Prozess, als in früheren Werkgruppen, wo die Bilder parallel entstanden sind. 

 

Ein weiterer entscheidender Unterschied zu allen bisherigen Werkgruppen ist die in mehreren Arbeiten ausschließliche Verwendung von Schwarz, Weiss und Grau. Die Reduktion der Farbpalette wirkt beinahe befreiend und schafft eine neue Konzentration und Dynamik auf die Konstellation von Figur und Grund, Raum, Fläche und Linie. Interessant ist, dass Fiona Rae nach einer ersten Gruppe von Greyscale Bildern parallel dazu über ging, doch auch wieder Farbe einzubringen, die allerdings weitaus zurückhaltender ist, als in früheren Werkgruppen. Deutlich erkennbar bleibt Fiona Raes Handschrift mit den vielen den visuellen Codes, die sie über die letzten Jahre entwickelt hat. 

 

Bei den Titeln der neuen Bilder hat sich die Malerin ebenfalls für einen neuen Ansatz entscheiden. Nachdem sie den Arbeiten der letzten Werkgruppe noch imaginative Titel zuwies wie Maybe you can live on the moon in the next century oder The very-once-in-a-lifetime moment, betitelt Rae die neuen Bilder mit einem Referenzsystem: Figure 1a, Figure 1b usw. Damit schafft sie eine Distanz zwischen Bild und Titel, die die Konzentration auf die Betrachtung der reinen Malerei ermöglicht. 

 

Die neuen Bilder machen deutlich, was Fiona Rae meint, wenn sie sagt: „In meinen Augen erwecken diese Bilder den Eindruck einer Figur während sie gleichzeitig auf dessen Abwesenheit drängen; die Malerei bleibt abstrakt. Ich will die Kraft der Farbspuren und Gesten, nur von Hand gemacht; das Bedürfnis eine Spur zu setzen, die tausende von Jahren zurückreicht.“

 

Die Arbeiten von Fiona Rae sind in zahlreichen öffentlichen Sammlungen vertreten, u. a. in der Tate Collection UK, dem Centre Pompidou Paris, dem Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, dem Hirshhorn Museum Washington D.C. und dem Mudam Luxembourg.

 

Für weitere Informationen über die Künstlerin und für Bildmaterial zu den Arbeiten in der Ausstellung können Sie sich gerne jederzeit mit der Galerie in Verbindung setzen.
