Rachel Lindsey Clark

KNEELING GIRL WITH THE PLAIT

"The girl with the plait was inspired by an evening of a drawing a much sought after model named Francesca Cluny. Better known under the moniker ‘Floor length Frankie’. For her first quick poses her hair was wound around her head in the manner of a Victorian lady and her pale face was that of an English rose. After the break she returned, to gasps from us all, having let down her magnificent plait that almost touched her ankles. I made several quick sketches and my ‘Lock-down’ wax models are from both real and imagined poses."

Artist and lithographer Rachel Lindsay-Clark grew up in South London and from her early years visited her sculptor grandfather who had a studio on the King’s Road. Nowadays she lives and works in Greenwich. She gained a B.A in Fine Art, at Goldsmiths College, specialising in printmaking. She regularly show at prestigious exhibitions including the Mall Galleries, Bankside Gallery, The Barbican and The South Bank as well as the London Affordable Art Fairs. Her work has also published in a 'Printmakers Handbook' and recently she has often held successful solo and joint exhibitions. She particularly enjoys making these sculptures, often based on drawings made in life class.
