Over the christmas holiday's I took a trip to the quaint little village of Rheda Wiedenbruck, around 25 miles from Bielefeld. It was really nice to spend the afternoon mooching around the Christmas market and buying a few presents to take back home.
Rachael Elwell is a visual artist from Greater Manchester UK, who researches drawing processes, experimental mark marking methods and uses mixed media to create her works.
Often inspired by rules, systems and repetitive actions, her work is often subject to chance occurrences as a result of exploiting the systems and methods initially employed to create her drawings.
Rachael Elwell continues her practice from Islington Mill Studios, Salford UK

Postcards From Bielefeld - a project for Touchstones Rochdale Art Gallery
In response to her residency and her time in Bielefeld, Rachael Elwell will send a postcard to Touchstones Rochdale each week documenting her experiences. When each postcard arrives it will be added to a display book in the entrance to the Art Gallery at Touchstones Rochdale for visitors to look at. Some of the postcards will also appear online.
