Rayvenn D'Clark is a London-based sculptor who specialises in life casting, body casting and prosthetics. She is concerned with issues of African diaspora, gender and the politics of visibility.

Digital Sculpture I Don’t See In Colour is a voyage into the economics of sex, race and gender in the Digital Age.

The artist describes her work as "A response to discourse surrounding the commodification of women; imposed upon them through consumerist trends and unrealistic capitalist idealisations and visualisation, this work is an exercise of turning the system inwards, on itself. The praxis between the past and the present, where intersecting identities (individual versus collective) come together within my oeuvre in my self-exploring the inherited legacy of trauma and history, ultimately reconstructing the narrative of race within narrative history that departs from cultural traditions as seen in I Don’t See in Colour. Reconditioning stereotypes and mediated reflections of the black body (politić) within the duality of invisibility and hyper-visibility where it resides."

D’Clark holds a Masters in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design and a Fine Art BA  from Chelsea College of Art and Design and completed her Fine Art Foundation course at Central Saint Martins.
