Susan Jacobs' practise has a strong basis in drawing which consistently informs spatial construction and object making, as processes that cyclically reference each other and often converge.

Combining organic and manufactured materials in natural and built environments, her work is characterised by an exploration and subversion of the inherent character and primary function of selected materials and chosen sites.

Side Effect is a new body of studio-based sculptural work comprising charcoal, timber, graphite and lead. Objects have been formed cumulatively - some from the by-products of the making of others. They occupy a circular dialogue through the process of their making and their situation in relation to each other.
