This article describes Skaer's use of found images in a range of media, including sculpture, drawing, film and collaborative projects. It notes the way she represents the material with little connection to the original context. It also mentions Skaer's own observation that irrationality is a key element in her practice and the way she incorporates beauty, charm, and craft but subverts the traditional manner in which these have been seen to reduce meaning and significance.
