Oh, I just got chills… beautiful, and oh so very ghostly! This is the work of Toronto based artist Amanda Clyne. She refers to this series as “erased photographs”. Amanda works with oil paint as well, but these pastel ladies have been “painted” in an entirely different way.

“It begins with a photograph. The photograph is printed on a paper to which the ink will not adhere, creating a wet, inky surface that I can move around with a brush. Painting the photograph ultimately leads to the ink’s removal, leaving only a residue of the painterly process. The stained and scarred paper is then scanned, photographing the remaining trace of the original image’s painterly obliteration.”

Gorgeous. Happy Friday.
