Using photography, collage, and re-photography, Comber’s images combine representations of environments, objects and figures within illusory space and real space bringing the real and the imagined into a shared frame and a common realm.
Her work frequently deals with the nature of photographs as both tactile and visual objects – original photographs are often the subjects of the final photographs, as they are cut out, altered and ultimately re-photographed into the final compositions.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, and is held in the permanent collections of both corporate and provincial institutions. Becky's work has been published editorially and through the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward competition as well as featured in the compilation Carte Blanch which was the first of its kind to highlight excellence in Canadian photography. She is currently working in her Grey County studio exploring new approaches to large scale collage towards a busy exhibition schedule in 2017.
