Ghost Dogs

Most of the dogs in the world do not have owners and the majority of those live in urban areas where they survive as scavengers. They are known as Village Dogs, but I think of them as Ghost Dogs, living around us but rarely noticed.

The five Ghost Dogs in this series are made of discarded material, carved tree branches and old sweaters. Each Dog is roughly 25”x 25”.

Anatomy informs the work as I measure by eye and look for asymmetrical shapes. I slow down the process, to allow for discovery.
