Tierra Del Sol Gallery presents “The Evolution of Helen Rae.” These 15 works represent the ongoing development of Rae’s studio practice and confirms her status as an iconic contemporary artist.
Helen Rae was over 50 when she joined the Tierra Del Sol Studio program and 76 years old when, in 2015, she had her first solo show at The Good Luck Gallery. Tierra Del Sol Gallery director Paige Wery, founder and principal of the commercial Good Luck, sold out Helen’s work at the Outsider Art Fair in 2016, putting Helen on the national map of galleries, collectors and museums.
In an arc that has included ceramic masks, sculpture and water color, Rae is now known for her vibrant, highly patterned, color dense pencil and graphite drawings inspired from couture magazines. In “The Evolution of Helen Rae,” she continues with her muse, yet focuses on portraiture and on the faces of women she does not know but brings to life with complexity and intimacy, using line, form and color to reveal a range of emotions.
The gallery is open by appointment ONLY – CLICK HERE to RSVP.
