JUDE RAE: A SPACE OF MEASURED LIGHT
Dates & times
Fri 18 August — Sun 15 October 2017
The exhibition features a selection of recent paintings and drawings by award-winning Sydney artist Jude Rae. Her art is staunchly based in first-hand perception and is supported by a technical mastery worthy of a seventeenth-century Dutch realist.
Jude Rae’s acute sensitivity to atmosphere, local colour and illusionistic space is channelled into highly formal renditions of the technological world of the twenty-first century. Vital questions are posed about the protocols of vision, the nature of realism and the validity of technique.
As well as a full complement of superbly composed still-lifes, there are large drawings of capacious interiors exploring devices of spatial framing.
Jude Rae has an association with the ANU School of Art and Design which is celebrating its fortieth year in 2017.
