Engberg said she had been struck by the number of younger artists who are meticulously recreating mundane objects by hand in an age of easier and more accessible mass production, and wanted to show the history of hyper-realism from the `60s to young artists like Yoshihiro Suda and Vija Celmins.
"They are not photorealists doing slick urban scenes or shiny cars or diners. These are things like a paper bag, an eraser, a comb _ very ordinary objects they brought back to life by remaking them," Engberg said.
