Sue Buchanan

I can’t go there . . . 
Boxes of produce brought to the city have now become these simple pieces that recall a favourite Victorian destination out of the city . . . and out of bounds at the moment. 
Painted cardboard collage brooches made from the ‘click and collect’ fruit and veg boxes from the market.

About the artist

Sue works within the disciplines of art and architecture. She is interested in how we negotiate, interpret and ultimately belong in our city habitat and typically makes site responsive works – jewellery and large-scale installations – to explore these themes. 
She is currently enrolled in a Masters by Research in contemporary jewellery.
