With her fresh approach to ordinary objects, surrealist artist Nancy Fouts changes the way the viewer perceives everyday life. The juxtaposition between shock and naivety tilts the original meaning of the object used on its head to such an extent that its original meaning becomes obsolete and a new significance is established.
"To have eyes in the back of your head means having the ability to detect what is going on all around one, even beyond one's field of vision. For the critically endangered Black Rhino they need even more than this, they need us to WATCH OUT for them and keep them safe."
