◊ “Joy does not flourish in the garden of anxiety” Phillip Pullman ◊

Working from images of dead bodies gleaned on the internet and from books,Boo Saville is preoccupied with restoring such temporal moments of death back into objects. Her work deals with the archetypes, symbolism and rituals around how we experience images of death and how these images have a totemic quality. Her Ghost 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.
