We (my friends & I) were wondering if the image in the shadow was intentional. After reviewing the artist’s description of the work, I tend to think so. If not, then perhaps some thing or some one else came along and made it possible, after all the term “ghost” is apparent. There is something ‘other’ about this piece. Intrigue.
A portion of Gabrielle Duggan’s statement reads ““When beginning the work on (giving up the) ghostglossary, I had in mind klecksopgraphy (Rorschach, or inkblot tests) and the human proclivity to discover, or conjure, up human likeness in symmetrical forms; specifically finding the human face in the abstract or ambiguous.”
This piece is on exhibit at the VAE (Visual Art Exchange) in Moore Square in downtown Raleigh and it’s one of several that drew me in.
