Inishkeas signed limited edition silkscreen print by Scottish abstract artist Barbara Rae CBE RA.

From a  series of four new silkscreen prints (Falmore, Moy Bank, and Inishkeas)  in a smaller format than her recent editions, ideally sized to be hung together. Each work displays Rae’s gift as a colourist, as does the harmony and balance she creates between the four pieces. This colour-balance across the series seems to echo the landscapes from which she has taken inspiration: the sun-drenched purples and ochres of Spain and South America contrasted with the muted petrol blues and greys of her native Scotland. Though each piece varies in palette and content, they are linked as a group by the horizontal gradation central to their composition. These washes of horizontal colour exemplify Rae’s interest in building layers and creating different textures. This effect is enhanced by the application of metallic ink highlighting certain areas and creating a sensation of the depth of the layers beneath.  Each composition contains examples of printed text, pattern, or a ‘scraped’ effect all lending to the tactility of the surface.  Rae continues the leaping salmon motif first seen in her recent editions Fish Pool, Ballinskelligs.
