Boo Saville – Ghost Series

This is “Ghost“, a fascinating photo etching series by the English artist Boo Saville.

This work is a selection from an edition of 31 unique multiples made from a photo etching of a dead mans image. These prints have been disrupted by being drawn on, burned or cut, in many ways changing the mark making process and adding an element of risk to the coherence of the final image. The title for the monoprints, ‘Ghost’, is a suggestion of the transient, fluid nature of this process and a play on its obvious, more macabre, reference.
