Helen Rae at The Good Luck Gallery
Helen Rae

January 12 – February 24, 2019
Reception: January 12, 7-10pm

Composed using colored pencil and graphite, Helen Rae (b.1938) creates dense, profoundly fractured drawings that are instantly recognizable and inescapably alluring. A bold use of color and sophisticated command of design culminates in a torrent of pattern and texture. Rae returns triumphantly to The Good Luck Gallery with all new work January 12, 2019.

Using fashion magazines as a point of departure, Rae elevates the source material to expose a world of momentous, subversive vision. A crease in the fabric of a jumpsuit receives the same attention as the model wearing it, as every subtle variation in color and texture is magnified.

For the last thirty years Rae has worked out of First Street Gallery, a progressive art studio for adults with developmental disabilities, now in Upland, CA. Laboring with dedication and singular focus, Rae works five days a week, vigorously merging colored pencils into paper, pressing so hard that a subtle texture can often be detected.

Already a veteran of numerous group exhibitions, in 2015 Rae burst onto the international art scene after receiving her first ever solo exhibition at The Good Luck Gallery. Since then she has gained momentum, receiving features in Vogue, Vulture, and The Los Angeles Times among many other publications. Rae’s first New York solo exhibition opened at White Columns in September 2017.

Helen Rae fashions fantastical dream worlds like no other and The Good Luck Gallery is thrilled to welcome her back for her third solo exhibition!
