A carved matchstick, charred at both ends - relatable to many people these days!...
About her Matchstick series, artist Liz McAuliffe writes:
"With the massive upscaling of the ubiquitous matchstick I invite the viewer to re-evaluate their relationship to these objects which are used daily by millions of people. I toy with the venerated practice of including a matchbox in photographs to give the viewer a safe and recognisable base-point for scale within an image. With no other object to compare with, this work undermines that safety."
