the world belongs to ghosts.

to continue with my speculative obsessions, artist pablo genoves  creates manipulated collages using photographs culled from historical obscurity. Imbuing apocalyptic disaster into each image ( devoid of humans and yet baring the architectural and cultural evidence of them) they hit a nerve about end of the world fears & remind me of scenes in dystopian movies where national landmarks are viewed upturned or people hunker in libraries burning book pages for basic survival. despite the conjured anxiety, each imagined ruin has a strange beauty, a familiar appeal that collapsed barns and abandoned houses or mental hospitals hold for me, and i think of the treasures & ghosts left behind, waiting to be discovered.
