Susan Napack's work is a visual treatise on collecting, an exploration into the deep emotional connections that exist between collector, objects and display.
It is apparent that Napack possesses a powerful bond with the individual objects in the work, which become vessels imparted with her experiences and notions of self. Her creative process involves meticulous layering in both the physical and metaphorical sense, a balance between control and the relinquishment of it.**
The work of Susan Napack delves into the realm of the deeply personal and the visually entrancing, revealing both an archivistís mania for order in a chaotic world and her fascination with the infinite possibilities of seeing.
Ö Process and concept are inseparable as she plays with her objects, her ideas, her past work, and her past, all the while asking herself: what if?*
