'places you can't imagine' 24x18 reprint - www.npandco.com / nopattern
Susan Stockwell’s work takes many forms from small elaborate studies to large scale installations, sculpture, drawings and collage. It is concerned with issues of ecology, geo-politics, mapping, trade and global commerce. The materials used are the everyday, domestic and industrial disposable products that pervade our lives. These materials are manipulated and transformed into works of art that are extraordinary.
Stockwell’s recent exhibition ‘Flood’ in York was made entirely from four tons of recycled computer components that were transformed into a site specific installation in St Marys’ a de-concecrated 13th century church. Highlighting the materials beauty the piece seeps into the space and surrounds us with its toxic exquisiteness. The computers were dissected, their innards exposed, revealing the underbelly of the machines we take for granted, an autopsy of our consumer society. The materials were lent by Secure IT Recycling based in Cheshire and after the exhibition were returned to them to be recycled.

’If the education of our kids comes from radio, television, newspapers - if that’s where they get most of their knowledge from, and not from the schools, then the powers that be are definitely in charge, because they own all those outlets.’ -Maynard James Keenan
‘In day-to-day commerce, television is not so much interested in the business of communications as in the business of delivering audiences to advertisers. People are the merchandise, not the shows. The shows are merely the bait. ‘-Les Brown
