Susan’s practice is constantly evolving often inspired by found images and charity shop curios.
The triptych riffs upon the real threat of historical over fishing on fish stocks and sustainability. There is a gentle nod to the Great British tradition of fish and chips at the seaside. Curated in reference to coastal pursuits ,a postcard and a luggage tag support the narrative.
Susan explains “On reading the brief ,I was inspired to create a unique statement piece .On selection it evolved into a wall hung installation. It is both a serious reflection on the current state of fishing policies tempered with a lighter nostalgic nod to all thing coastal .From Victorian times working class people have traditionally migrated to the seaside to enjoy the beauty of our coast and waters. I myself look forward to an annual break by the sea ,perhaps taking for granted the sustainability of such a classically British pursuit.”
