Judith Spence

The title comes from Keats' poem, Ode To A Grecian Urn. The floating pajama-clad figure of the artist above the scenes of a seance suggests the ghosts of unknown, unidentified history that disturb rest, that make sleep elusive. This is an earlier treatment of the shipwreck theme. It's a more refined, intellectual approach to a pretty raw experience.
