Sarah Hobbs explores the world of phobias and aspects of erratic human behavior in her constructed environments. Untitled (Eggs) is one of a number of works by the artist that focus on an obsessive gathering of selected objects. Here the viewer is drawn into the image by the seeming perfection of the eggs, which on closer examination reveal extensive flaws and cracks. Because the objects are presented approximately life-size, they relate directly to human scale, but humans are eerily absent from this photograph and similar works by the artist.
