Isobel Rayson and Nick Stranks contemplate ideas of memory and narrative in their joint exhibition, Almost Always. With consideration to time, identity, and history, their works intersect with a shared interest of material investigation and process-driven methodologies.
Exploring further themes of home and family, Isobel’s work begins to unpack the complexity of relationships and the importance of connection, shaped by the ways in which we relate to, and interact with, objects and individuals in our surroundings. Nick’s work continues his ongoing curiosity in objects and the stories they tell through the lens of their maker or previous owner. Often rich with narrative, his work offers momentary glimpses into his own personal experience and history.
