Image Statement: The inclusion of found nails injects an unexpected element of ruggedness and rawness into the artwork. By repurposing these everyday objects, Susan infuses the piece with a sense of history and narrative, inviting viewers to contemplate the unseen stories hidden within these seemingly mundane items. The juxtaposition of these humble nails against the delicacy of paper and fabric creates a striking visual contrast, elevating the artwork's conceptual depth.
