New medium?

I have been thinkingof new ways to create work and recently stumbled upon an artist that made me question my use of materials. I find painting, drawing, and collage to be my preferred media but wonder if I choose them out of comfort. Barbara Abel's photography of vintage mannequins, posed to create a tension between life and non-life is inspiring. Check it out, tell me what you think.
