Accompanying an exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery (11 May–26 August 2012), this catalogue examines Rae's paintings from the last decade. Rae’s recent works explore, in painterly analogues, many of the new visual conventions familiar to a post-Photoshop generation. 

 

The artist mixes graphic and cartoon imagery with abstract marks and spontaneous gestures to create an iconoclastic synthesis of painterly languages. Alongside over 40 full-colour illustrations, texts by Sarah Brown and Gilda Williams focus on the range of influences and ideas inherent within Rae's humorous and complex paintings.
