The pieces all use different types of trompe-l'oeil effects in order to investigate issues concerning identity, craft, value and labour. Everyday objects, etched, splattered and stained with the marks of work and wear & tear, are seen, at a first glance to be the secondary results of a primary activity seemingly worthless and easily ignored. I am interested in the shift in perception that takes place upon discovery that they are, instead, the primary activity themselves. Susan Collis
