Artist Angela Deane Creates Humorous Ghost Paintings on Found Photographs
"Ghost Photographs" by artist Angela Deane is an ongoing series which explores the beautiful, painful, and ultimately puzzling human condition of having memories. Using mostly found photographs Deane covers the people in the pictures with paint, subtracting the specific identity of each person and transforming them into anonymous ghosts for the viewer to project upon. Speaking about the project she says, "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. "
