Fiona Rae

Fiona Rae's powerful abstract paintings are a skillful balance between premeditated techniques and improvised impulses. Recognisable motifs, braided linear forms, expressionist brushstrokes and a wealth of other painterly marks are combined into a dynamic and energetic whole.

John Jones are delighted to produce hand-made tulip wood stretcher bars for Fiona at our north London studios. Each bar is created to a special 1 3/4" deep profile with a sharpened edge. This results in a deeper more box-shaped stretcher which holds the canvas fabric safely away from the bars whilst retaining a crisp edge. Each piece is stretched on our premises with a heavy but regular weave cotton duck canvas fabric, ideal for the application of multiple layers of oil, acrylic and gouache!
