Ghost Image is an experiment in materials, texture, and writing. Inspired by a photo I took at night of the full moon that resulted in what I believe is a photo aberration. I used the abstracted image as a basis for color, shape and texture. In the spirit of the hand drawn/ painted I choose to work with variety of hand painted collaraphs as a way to achieve a repeatable hand worked texture.
Typically I am an image-maker that either collaborates with a writer or uses found text, but have recently been interested generating my own text. Instead of directly collaborating with a writer I chose to respond to a couple of poets/ poems; Carl Sandburg, Wilderness and Robert Lax’s minimalists poetry.
