Tools

Manufactured hand tools held in the hand and slung over the shoulder to mark the paper are, amongst other methods, a process whereby she teases the surface of the paper in a way that there is an interplay between the artist and the surface, between Self and Other.The tools are made by the artist by hand and almost looks primitive, inspired by traditional tools or even hand mirrors. Some are evocative suggesting the weapons.

The sewing machine, to her, is a tool in paradox. It tears paper at the same time as it repairs it. The gesture of this mark is both violent and reparative in one action. The sewing action allows the artist to be in front of as well as behind, or even go through the paper. The labour and time-consuming act of sewing creates time and distance. Through the near-instant action of tearing and then repairing the paper, giving it a second chance, Susan engages in an action, developing a constant tension between creation and destruction. Tears, cuts and stitches entrap the ink layers and again are gestures of violent and reparative acts at the same time. This all referring to the violent and traumatic landscape where she hails from.
