Fiona Rae, Drawing (last night I saw the strangest dream), 2022, Gouache and watercolor on paper, 11 3/4 x 9 7/8 inches

British artist Fiona Rae is perhaps best known for paintings that draw from an incredibly diverse range of inspiration, from Abstract Expressionism to Japanese anime and traditional typography. Rae’s inaugural solo show at Miles McEnery Gallery in New York (through November 26) features both recent paintings and works on paper. In her latest series, Rae investigates the many ways that abstraction operates both in visual art and in literature. Using lines drawn from classic and popular literature as titles of and as visual motifs, she challenges art hierarchies and at the same time explores new dimensions of the numerous influences that inform her work.
