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.
