A figurative ambiguous archetype apparition appears in the landscapes, a twilight shape shifter of death and morbidity. It appears in a disguise, in a state of metamorphism and masquerade's hiding the masked persona of our unseen shadow self, the unwanted repressed subconscious aspect of the human psyche.
The conceptual aspect of the classical theatrical ghost costume represents the ethereal hauntings of ghosts that often interact with the mortal world momentarily from another dimension. It is suggestive of a soul from beyond the grave and the essence of mystery allows the viewers imagination to questions overlapping monologues, of what is beyond the veil of death, do ghosts actually exist; Is there anything inside, will it unleash or is it chained down to the core hiding both face and mind, what is beneath the mask, beneath the skins where it hides. Will it make manifest to the living or will it shed the old scars of fear and transform into a higher vibration or new self from its shadow self? Or will it remain a ghost or someone’s energetic soul fragment with no physical body forever in a parallel universe.? Does the human psyche hide so much; is there an aspect of the soul that lives on after physical death? These are the questions I asked myself as an artist who studies what is beyond, what is within, what is often unseen, ethereal in nature and not of the physical plane.
It’s a costume made from recycled materials, with torn shreds & cords hanging from it, representing the past old psychic cords to individuals & situations we hang on to. That has been used in performance art, filmed, photographed or manipulated with digital media to frame the characteristic of mood & movement. it can shimmer with the movement of the light and mystery schools of thought or it can be as dark as the canyons of the mind to tap into someone’s subconscious fears.
It is an art project that seems to have an arena of it’s own, having been on a journey in public protests, performance art, developed into prints for the esoteric world of spirit & mind-fullness; is in a collaborative film production with a professional producer and film director, for an Art-house film project; It has also been known to tap into individuals psyches, revealing subconscious attachments to fear based energies, just by its presence.. It is subtle in approach, spiritual and has sometimes been known to make individuals nervous. Yet it is just a creative expression of an aspect of a shadow that seems to have limitless opportunities to be part of a stage in life.
I use my versitility in art, design and techniques to express an inner knowledge I gained through my work as a light worker, psychic clairvoyant with my expanded sense of consciousness through my cosmic connection to the collective consciousness & inner visions. As also my knowledge of the shadow self, spirit & soul, by studying psycology, the human psyche as a transformative shadow, with my ability to see energetic imprints of soul in individual’s auras, places and other dimensions. As we all have a shadow aspect, part of the persona which is unseen by the naked eye, which comes from unwanted experience's, negative conditioning and the ghost of our past! Which is a personnel journey I took in my life of casting out my own unwanted shadow from myself.
The conceptual theory behind the shadow ghost has a purpose to bring in awareness of something deeper within our soul. As the imagery of the shadow ghost seems to have the ability to merge with others individual psyches which can develop awareness to what is often over looked, dismissed, or not noticed, although there present in our every day life, but it is subtle in nature, belonging to something beyond physical reality.
Which brings us back to the shadows of man or "The Ghosts of the Past", So Who are the ghost within us & in ethereal visitation in places from other dimensions?
