Workshop: Painting

 Jude Rae is a Canberra based painter. She has been twice winner of the Portia Geach Memorial Award, in 2005 with her portrait of painter Micky Allan and in 2008 with a self portrait.

 "I think of painting as a series of material experiments with tradition and perception. … Object and subject are held in a balance, like that which occurs between breathing out and breathing in." 

Rae says that in her portraiture she has been mindful of not losing the essence of her still life work. "If you get too caught up in the likeness it can carry you away from the painterliness."' (Sydney Morning Herald, 30/9/05)"
