“My work explores mark making as a means to investigate and document ideas of presence
and trace. I am often preoccupied with thoughts of passing time; where I stand in my
immediate environment and how I might capture this temporality as a record of my presence in the world.” – Isobel Rayson.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of Australia.
