Publication dedicated to Fiona Rae's early series Row Paintings now published by Buchmann Galerie.

Buchmann Gallery is pleased to announce the publication of the first catalogue dedicated to Fiona Rae's Row Paintings. The comprehensive volume features work from the eponymous series which was conceived by the artist in the late 1980's to the early 1990s. These works mark the inception of the artist’s internationally acclaimed oeuvre. An essay by Terry R. Myers offers an appraisal of the Row Paintings’ significance in their historic context as well as within the contemporary discourse of painting.


Fiona Rae attracted wide attention with her abstract paintings when she participated in the legendary exhibition Freeze in London’s Docklands in 1988. It put her on the map as an early member of the group which became known as the Young British Artists (YBAs), who would revolutionize the British art world and beyond. To this day, Rae’s distinctive creations, which are rooted in a conceptual engagement with the problems and potential of abstract painting, have remained prominent and seminal contributions to the field.


The fully illustrated catalogue is published by Buchmann Galerie and DCV Books. A selection of the Row Paintings will be exhibited at the Buchmann Galerie Berlin from 5 November until 18 December.
