“It may be through contrasts and antitheses that Susanna Lakner’s image building techniques can best be characterized. Generous clarity and meticulousness; free playfulness and discipline; rich emotions and decent ironies; bewildering leaps and accuracy to the millimetre; a disarming plurality of thought and material as opposed to inexorable coherence. And on top of all that, despite the infinite thematic variety and the choice of material from age-old paper antiquities through today’s newspapers, as well as the incredible divergence of formats and approaches, the end result is invariably an unmistakable a Lakner collage. And in it, evidently, in a self-explanatory manner, everything has fallen into its right place. Next, we see it along all other sheets, cards, fold-outs, boxes, notebooks, and books rise to a custom sector in Planet Susannia, a universe built upon consistency coupled with freedom, where an impressive and beautiful entirety is becoming more and more complete in spite of its inherent unfinishability.
