Unholy Ghosts
"Unholy Ghosts", consists of images of a figure underneath a child’s bed sheet. The ghost is a metaphor for the haunting quality of mental illness and memory, as well as a reference to a common childhood experience of hiding. In the "Unholy Ghost Interior View" series, I paint from views inside these sheets to create abstracted visions of the interior experience of childhood.
