Isobel’s work explores mark making as a means to investigate and document ideas of presence and trace. The creation of her recent 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 she hopes to examine how her ephemeral presence might be preserved through these traces.
