Rachel Mortlock graduated earlier this year in June 2018 and has been establishing grounds for her practice with fervour since then.

Following a successful graduate exhibition in London, Rachel was selected for the Graduate Platform Award at Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth – an exhibition which is on until the end of December 2018.

Just before this, Rachel was part of a group that worked for Creekside Artists.

She said: “I was really lucky and very soon after I finished University, I worked for Creekside Artists helping them relocate their studios.

“They kindly organised a group exhibition for the 10 artists that helped them. This was a really great opportunity to make a site-specific work outside of University and begin exhibiting work outside of the institution.
