Rachel Lindsey Clark


"This is the first little wax figure in my Distancing Diary. Perky Sophia is one of my favourite models. Her poses are always completely natural, unselfconscious and yet meditative. My quick sketch gives me a starting point as I conjure her up in three dimensions. The soft brown casting wax is perfect for swiftly made models as it is easy to change, remove and replace areas without weakening the material. If my hands are too warm or the studio too hot it does get sticky, so I simply to take a tea break until the wax firms up again."

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.
