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.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
