Piece inspired by: Poe, “Haunted”

Come here…. No I won’t say pleaseOne more look at the ghost before I’m gonna make it leave


I tend to be too literal when I am given assignments, even within what are intended to be more “free-form” projects– perhaps out of a fear of disappointing others,  and it’s something I really want to change about myself.So this time, I really wanted to do a more symbolic, emotional piece which explores more of what the song made me feel or think rather than what it might be specifically saying.I imagined this was a song about someone whose spouse has died, and they remain wrapped in the memory of their touch, their smell, their everything. Their favorite room is untouched, their clothing still folded in drawers.I wanted to make an image about someone facing their love for the final time, and gently beginning the process of pulling away from the comfort of sadness and rejoining the world. Misery would love to keep us in its grasp–sometimes we don’t know who or what we would be without it–but the work of healing eventually must be done.

So early modern people were an interesting bunch, generally having a love-hate relationship with magic. Most magic came from the devil, but there were plenty of folk rituals and spells that were basically ok because they were supposed to repel evil spirits and were done by Good God-Fearing Christians. The clergy often weren’t too keen on this, but those types of beliefs are hard to stamp out: hence why the only person in Salem who was proven to have intentionally made a magic spell was forgiven, because she was just trying to help find the real witch.

There were a few different ways to keep witches and spirits out of your house based on these folk beliefs: you could place in your walls a sacrifice (usually an animal), or a piece of personal clothing or a “witch bottle” containing your essence (read: urine) to capture the spirit, or you could carve certain symbols near entrances that would repel them.

Oh my god. (”Based on real people you shouldn’t google, the allegations against them will ruin the movie” is the best dig at the Warrens I’ve ever heard.)
