Presented in the Long Gallery, Painter, Painter: Dan Perfect, Fiona Rae is an exhibition of large-scale recent paintings by British artists Fiona Rae and Dan Perfect.

Both these artists find space between the abstract and the representational world in unique and distinctive ways. Committed to the expressive and enduring language of painting, they share a deep interest in our contemporary experience refracted through technology and cultural media, with manifestly different outcomes in their work. Perfect and Rae are married and live together, working in separate studios in the same building in London’s East End.

This is the first major simultaneous presentation of their paintings in a public gallery, and the first dedicated contemporary painting exhibition at Nottingham Castle for many years.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue designed by Peter Willberg, featuring texts by Martin Herbert, and is available to purchase for a special exhibition price of £12 from our shop (normal RRP £18.95).

Exhibition continues May 3 to July 6 2014
