Dots is a vibrant and varied series of abstract paintings exploring the relationship between transparency and opacity, and plays with the idea of ‘spy holes’. It plays with colour, simulated and physical texture and makes intensive use of spray paints and stencilling. It’s roots are in my love of collecting ‘many alike’ objects into complex arrangements.
It is the culmination of several years of practice and experimentation with spray paints, and their combination with more traditional fine art paints and techniques.

Nicki MacRae is a Scottish-based artist (painting in acrylic, spray paint and mixed media), who for the last ten years as been exploring the landscape of the Highlands of Scotland and subjects such as Heritage, the Built Environment, Archaeology, Interiors and the Domestic environment, culminating in several major bodies of work. Her painting takes joy in texture, reparative mark making, and expressive line-work, and enjoys exploring the relationship between ‘intended’ and ‘accidental’ in the creative process. She is inspired by early 20th century artists, the St Ives School of Art and Street Art. Her artworks are in private collections across the UK, Europe and in the USA, New Zealand and Canada.
