Ghost – an artistic response

Avery Lafortune explored the notion of the individual in her artwork entitled “Ghost”, where she has created a wraith-like genie emerging from his lamp, the entire piece rendered in salt and pepper. In relation to the moral exploration of the individual, perhaps this piece could be perceived as an exploration of how human desire, in the form of the genie’s three wishes, can turn to self-destructive greed.
