Darkness usually has a fear element or connotation associated with it, but sometimes it's actually ok to be in the dark. In the darkness the things that we fear can give way to hope when light pierces through. And the thing about darkness, is that the darker the dark - the brighter the light will shine. I've sadly been in some dark places (who hasn't?) and what I've learnt is that if life was all light and sunshine all the time we'd never truly appreciate it. It's like having the good with the bad - we don't appreciate the good unless bad things have happened that we can draw a contrast from. So too, the darkness. Without the dark we don't truly appreciate the beautiful light that eventually comes to drown it out.
NB: While every effort is made to capture the true colours and details of my artwork, every screen is different and art viewed online does not do my work justice. Slight differences may be evident between a screen image and the true tone of my work which is more vivid and beautiful in reality. Scale may also be slightly off due to the insitu art app used, so please ensure you measure your space. Thank you!
