Everyone has a Dark Side...

You may deny it, you may embrace it, but one thing is for sure... We all have a dark side!

There is something unique about the dark. Stripping you of your sense of sight, it creates a powerful environment of unease and excitement. Darkness has been explored in poems, writings, art works and music alike. Edgar Allan Poe famously wrote in his poem The Raven, “Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” It has the ability to transport you and entice you into a state which you cannot seem to drag yourself away from.

All the feelings that darkness evokes are challenging to replicate, and few artists are able to distil its essence through colour, subject and timbre. But faced with one of these intriguing artworks you may find yourself, like Edgar Allan Poe, stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

Harness this feeling, give in to your dark side and make a statement with a powerful piece of art.
