All are welcome
Using photography, collage, and re-photography, Comber’s images combine representations of environments, objects and figures within illusory space and real space bringing the real and the imagined into a shared frame and a common realm.
Her work frequently deals with the nature of photographs as both tactile and visual objects. These hand cut interventions distort the relationship between printed images and representation of the environment to explore the formal chaos of wild things.
