Artist Angela Deane is painting the world white, and a full-scale invasion of paranormal entities is underway, thanks to the strokes of her brush. Have no fear, however, because they're not looking to harm or scare the pants off you. They just want to have fun.
As we spotted over on Beautiful Decay, Deane recently embarked on a project called 'Ghost Photographs,' where she paints friendly-looking ghosts over top of found photos. Obscuring the faces and bodies of the people in these photographs with white sheets and black eye-holes, Deane sets out to explore the idea of memories, which she describes as a "beautiful, painful and ultimately puzzling human condition."
"I cover the people with paint, subtracting the specific identity of each person and transforming them into anonymous ghosts for the viewer to project upon," says the artist. "In this way, a private and specific experience becomes an open and shared one through the material addition of paint on photograph. Through this haunting of the material, the ghosts become us and we become the ghosts."
