Rachel Goodison's practice is rooted in the figurative. She likes to use fluid, abstract marks to create an impression of volume and body. Her aim is to create an unsettling atmosphere of disquiet, playing with the ideas of presence and absence, fantasy and reality. She often uses the silhouette to explore our ability as humans to experience different internal emotions. She is also fascinated by the passage of time and our changing perceptions to time passing as we move through life. She has been exploring this concept by using the drip as one of time's markers.
