‘Sukey creates beautiful images that draw the viewer in by resisting an obvious narrative resolution. Like a young bird looking for its lost nest, you keep circling, trying to identify what it is that draws you in, makes you want to view it again and again. In her own words, she is preoccupied with the fault lines that exist between absolutes. Sukey draws inspiration from photographic artists like Gregory Crewdson, but as a portraitist, she has a very different relationship with her (mostly) female subjects. By colliding the sitter's personality and props (whether clothing or setting) with the theatrical (whether story or lighting or whatever), she manages to construct images that resonate with both the real and the imaginary.’
