CURRENT SHOW - Jennifer McRae - Hinterland - 13 - 30 September 2016

Hinterland - The Landscape behind the Mind.

'As a painter, the freedom to create one's own private world is an extremely privileged experience. A possible escapism but the totems are from reality, the observation in real time portraying experiences and contemporary places travelled to'

Another Portrait by Jennifer McRae unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery, London - July 2016

This new portrait is of Baroness Dame Gail Rebuck, chair of Penguin Random House UK.

When the National Portrait Gallery asked me if I would sit for a portrait, I was both amazed and humbled by the honour. It was the beginning of a fascinating journey, including the first question they put to me: 'how do you see yourself?' which left me unusually speechless. But when I met Jennifer McRae, I knew immediately that here was a woman of dedicated vision and ability and I trusted her immediately.
