David Salle - Ghost Paintings

David Salle actually stages and photographs most of the figures seen in his work. A case in point is the nude dancer performing improvised movements under a sheet in his 1992 series, “Ghost Paintings,” which has never been exhibited until now.
Salle photographed the model from above as she writhed on a platform. He then printed every image in black and white on three pieces of photosensitized linen, which were then stitched together in horizontal bands to form a large canvas.
The ghostly theme is made manifest in the model herself, who, except for an arm or leg, remains unseen.
