Rachel Lindsey-Clark: Breath and Shadow

Artist and lithographer Rachel Lindsay-Clark has long been an observer of London. From her early years visiting her sculptor grandfather who had a studio on the King’s Road to her days as a student at Goldsmith’s College in the late 70s, to working in a studio in the pre-gentrification Surrey Docks area, she has had the opportunity of examining and drawing the city In all its moods and states; ever a magnet for a child growing up in the dull suburbs.

Rachel interprets the term ‘drawing’ to encapsulate the form of collage in any material, including found objects and sculpture, believing that drawing existed as a means of communication before the spoken word. How else could early humans express the idea of ‘I was here’?

A city may inspire many different layers and levels in terms of drawing. The ceaseless movement of the city, from the river Thames to the human inhabitants; nothing is ever still here. It is this mercurial nature of the city that Rachel strives to capture. Her work can be seen until 29th October 2016 at the Paul McPherson Gallery.
