“And as to being in a fright,
Allow me to remark
That Ghosts have just as good a right
In every way, to fear the light,
As Men to fear the dark.”
“Ghost Dance” – Exploring the ideas of soul and spirit.
This is the beginning of a series of works inspired by Japanese Rocudou-E ghost paintings daring from the late 15th century, as well as the phenomena of Victorian scientific photographs of spectres and souls taken in the pursuit of providing pictorial evidence of spirit.
