Rachael Clewlow

Through painting and printmaking Rachael Clewlow has created a visual language that reflects an obsessive attention to detail and a desire to map out her own experiences of the world.

In an ongoing series of diaries begun in 2003, she creates rigorous and detailed recordings of her everyday movements. Planned abstract journeys taken to explore selected cities and regions sit alongside the mundane routes she takes from A to B.

This record becomes a highly portable form of trace and a rich source of data from which Clewlow begins to construct paintings and prints. Drawing from elements from the language of infographics and of cartography, these works also demonstrate an obsession with colour and the formal concerns of abstract painting.

Rachael produced Colour Register Key No.1 and Colour Register Map No.1 as special commissions for The Lumen.
