In My Room | Iain Burke
9x9in, Watercolor on Butterboard. 2013
Piece for a show called “In My Room” Hosted by Monica Ramos and Rachel Levit.
The theme was to share what’s in your own personal room using a specifically assigned color pallet.
Since pretty much everything I do is digital or in ink, I had to run to the store and buy a tube of watercolor… as you can see, I don’t have much experience with the medium but this was very fun to do nonetheless.
“William Hope (1863 – 8 March 1933) was a pioneer of so-called “spirit photography” (spirit photography is a type of photography whose primary attempt is to capture images of ghosts and other spiritual entities, especially in ghost hunting). Based in Crewe, England, he was a member of the well known spiritualists group, the Crewe Circle.
On 4 February 1922, the Society for Psychical Research and the paranormal investigator Harry Price attempted to prove that Hope was a fraud during tests at the British College of Psychic Science.
