The Spirits are always with you [bwahaha]

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Stacy Smith is one of those rare artists on Etsy with a nice, understated flair for the spooky and Halloweenish. Stacy lives near Buffalo, NY where there are plenty of opportunities for spookiness in the fall, and I suspect she knows just where to look.

In this particular piece, Stacy has made a digital photo collage that highlights her strong connection to spirits. There are two ghostly figures at either end of the tunnel as well as an orb. The tunnel has gad strong symbolic overtones since ancient times, going right back to cave dwellings. Often tunnels such as this are symbolic of the journey of life or parts of it such as the beginning (birth) or end (death.)

Currently, Stacy is finding new focus in her work after the death of her father who suffered from Alzheimer's. I am looking forward to seeing how her work changes and grows, and I wish her the best of luck.
