Isobel Rayson

2015

Isobel Rayson is an emerging sculpture and installation artist exploring time-based performances. Carried out as small rituals, the performances are incorporated into her everyday living routines. Each performance explores various mark-making techniques such as stamping, carving and grasping to capture and preserve the presence of the artist. The final works are essentially a by-product or artefact produced as a result of these mark-making techniques.
