De'Longhi Print Room (Free entry)
Barbara Rae RA has made printmaking an integral part of her artistic activity since her student days. Monoprints, screenprints and etchings inform her approach to painting which combines the influence of landscape and travel with painterly abstraction. Although she rejects the term ‘landscape painter’, the importance of place is evidently apparent in her works; in particular the human traces and patterns of history that are left on a landscape.
Focusing on Rae’s innovative etchings and screenprints, this exhibition presents landscapes the artist experienced in her travels across the globe, from New Mexico, Spain and Ireland to her homeland of Scotland and includes one of the artist’s favourite prints Harbour Nights.
