March: Jude Rae and Lucy O’Doherty
Jude Rae is an established artist with over 30 years professional experience. Known for her still life paintings, portraits and architectural interiors, the low-key imagery she employs allows the attention to dwell on the formal and material aspects of representational painting.
Rae won the Portia Geach Memorial Award for Portraiture in 2005 and 2008. She was the recipient of the prestigious Bulgari Award in 2016 and has been an Archibald finalist in 2014 and 2019.
Rae is represented by The Commercial (Sydney), Philip Bacon Galleries (Brisbane), Two Rooms (Auckland). Her work is held in major public and private collections in Australia, New Zealand, UK and USA.
Lucy O’Doherty is an emerging painter whose works offer up surreal moments in time. Working with oil acrylic, and pastels, she paints scenes of abandoned structures in the landscape, empty backyards, and lonely interiors.
In 2016 O’Doherty was highly commended in the Pro Hart Outback prize 2016, and won the Brett Whiteley Traveling Art Scholarship, which saw her travelling through Europe for six months including a three-month studio residency at Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris.
O’Doherty is represented by China Heights (Sydney), Edwina Corlette (Brisbane), and Millers O’Brien Gallery (Wellington).
