Rachel Goodison

“Everyone has a story to tell, and I am fascinated by the different ways that artists explore a person’s state of mind, a feeling, or a specific moment in their life.  Artists often do this through the choices they make - which colours or textures to seek; how fast or how slowly to make a mark; which composition and which setting best suits the subject.  All these choices will promote a particular mood.  As I work, I explore these questions through drawings, paintings and mono-prints. “

Goodison’s watercolour mono-prints depict children.  They investigate how children can hold up mirrors to society, often with childish humour, but sometimes confronting us with disconcerting reflections.
