Isobel Rayson - Vestiges
My work explores mark making as a means to investigate and document ideas of presence and trace. 100 Days of Mark Marking is the largest series of wood block carvings I have completed. The creation of these latest works involves completing daily rituals and routines based on physical mark making that follow a series of directives, these include varying time parameters, established prior to commencing each work. The final works become relics that document these routines. With this research I hope to examine how my ephemeral presence might be preserved through these traces.
