About the edition 

This new and exclusive limited edition print has been commissioned for Studio Voltaire's Frieze London 2021 presentation. Kaye Donachie is a contemporary Scottish painter best known for her muted, figurative paintings. Throughout her oeuvre, she explores the history of countercultures, domesticity, and utopian ideals, often choosing to focus on female figures and leaders. Donachie will sometimes superimpose landscapes over or within portraits that depict the sermons of cult leaders, forming tableaus that are at once mysterious and deeply evocative. “In the paintings, the character and the description of time and place drift between dream and reality, as the day passes into night,” the artist has said. “The paintings and drawings are structured like pages from a book but the play or script denies any linear narrative seeking to express evocative moments in time.” Donachie’s imagery brings to mind the psychedelia of contemporaries like Peter Doig, while the subtle tonal palette recalls Luc Tuymans. The edition directly supports Studio Voltaire's exhibition, learning and studio programmes
