Press release

Pastel shades dominate the new paintings by British artist Fiona Rae (*1963 in Hong Kong, lives and works in London). Fiona Rae sounds out the possibilities of the genre in her painting, understanding abstraction as a language to be continually re-modified.  

 

After restricting herself exclusively to the colour range white to black in a previous group of works, here the conceptual starting point is almost the reverse, inasmuch as black is eliminated altogether and used neither as an independent colour nor for mixing with other shades. Instead, the focus is on delicate, fluidly merging pastel shades, with which Fiona Rae creates a cloudy picture ground, in which it is not entirely clear where one colour begins and another ends. The artist combines this pictorial space with graphic, sometimes merely suggested, expressive painterly gestures, which may be interpreted as either figurative or abstract. 

 

The pictorial space exudes a fathomless, floating sensuality, a bacchanal element that provides the basis for numerous graphic settings such as arrows or apparently stylized brushstrokes. As kind of super-signs, these act like characters performing the drama of painting on the canvas. 

 

Unsurprisingly, the titles also point towards this new theatricality in the work of Fiona Rae: they refer to archetypical fairy-tale characters and originate from plays by William Shakespeare: The Tempestand A Midsummer Night's Dream. Here, too, we sense Rae's fascination with the collision between high culture and the banal. In this context, the artist remarks:

 

I am intrigued by the juxtaposition of high and low, of serious and comic, of familiar and esoteric, and what that might mean and suggest when found together in a painting or a title.

 

There has always been an encyclopaedic dimension to Fiona Rae's work as well, as Nicolas Bourriaud indicated in “The Atlas of Fiona Rae”. 

In the artist's current works the encyclopaedic attains a new quality: the painterly gestures reveal the genre of painting as a field dominated by diversely layered information, which is assessed in ever new ways via theatrical handling of this same information and codes. 

 

Fiona Rae's works are represented in numerous public collections, including the Tate Collection UK, Centre Pompidou Paris, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin and the Mudam Luxembourg.

Pressemitteilung

Pastelltöne dominieren die neuen Bilder der britischen Malerin Fiona Rae (*1963 in Hong Kong, lebt und arbeitet in London). In ihrer Malerei lotet Fiona Rae die Möglichkeiten des Genres aus. Dabei versteht sie Abstraktion als eine immer neu zu modifizierende Sprache. 

 

Nachdem sich die Künstlerin in einer vorangegangenen Werkgruppe ausschließlich auf die Farbpalette von weiß bis schwarz festlegte, ist hier der konzeptuelle Ausgangspunkt beinahe eine Umkehrung, indem schwarz gänzlich ausgelassen wird, weder als eigenständige Farbe, noch in irgendeinem Mischungsverhältnis. Dafür liegt der Fokus auf sanft ineinander fließenden Pastelltönen, mit denen Fiona Rae einen wolkigen Bildgrund schafft, in dem nicht ganz klar ist, wo die eine Farbe anfängt und eine andere aufhört. Diesen Bildraum verbindet die Künstlerin mit zeichenhaften und teilweise nur angedeuteten gestisch malerischen Setzungen, die sowohl figürlich als auch abstrakt lesbar sind. 

 

Der Bildraum ist von einer unergründlichschwebenden Sinnlichkeit, ein schwelgerisches Element, der den Grund bildet für eine Vielzahl von zeichenhaften Setzungen wie Pfeile oder stilisiert wirkende Pinselstriche. Als eine Art Super-Zeichen führen sie Charakteren gleich das Drama der Malerei auf der Leinwand auf. 

 

Wenig überraschend verweisen auch die Titel auf diese neue Theatralität im Werk von Fiona Rae: Die Titel beziehen sich auf archetypische Märchenfiguren oder stammen aus Dramen von William Shakespeare:Der Sturmund Ein Sommernachtstraum. Auch hier greift wieder Raes Faszination für die Kollision zwischen Hochkultur und dem Banalen. Die Künstlerin bemerkt hierzu:

 

I am intrigued by the juxtaposition of high and low, of serious and comic, of familiar and esoteric, and what that might mean and suggest when found together in a painting or a title.

 

Auch eine enzyklopädische Dimension war in Fiona Raes Werk immer schon vorhanden, wie Nicolas Bourriaud in „The Atlas of Fiona Rae“ ausführte.

In den aktuellen Arbeiten der Künstlerin erreicht das enzyklopädische nun eine neue Qualität: die malerischen Gesten zeigen uns das Genre der Malerei als ein von vielfältig geschichteten Informationen dominiertes Feld, welches durch einen theatralischen Umgang mit diesen Informationen und Codes immer wieder neu gewichtet wird.

 

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 oder dem Mudam Luxembourg
