|Description ("Abusrd Love" series)|
This series draws on the lore of Gullah descendants of enslaved Africans living in the Atlantic coastal region of the US, in the states of Georgia and
South Carolina. According to Gullah tradition, the boo hag (who may take the appearance of a beloved) is a tortured spirit that sucks the life force from
a sleeping person in the middle of the night. In this series, there's an added character -- a dog (or wolf, or ghost hound), and it's a little less
clear who is loving, or attacking, whom. I like enigma.
Each 7" X 7" collage of dyed tyvek and commercial paper is mounted (with archival paste) on an 8" V 11" piece of 100lb card stock.
