Delusions of Disintegration – Smoke
Medium: Graphite Pencil and Gold Metallic Paint on Paper
Nr 6 is the embodiment of spirit. Plasma is exhaled in a cloud of smoke and engulf the hair. Gold metallic shadows give the smoke a liquid quality. The human soul is said to consist of a plasma-like substance and has even been photographed as it left the body of spirit mediums. I’ve been fortunate enough to see such a photo, and it is quite disturbing: It was a black-and-white photograph of a medium sitting in an armchair wholly entranced. All the while thick, smoky plasma makes its escape through his nose in a huge cloud.
