What is it about grotesque or "dark" art that makes people uncomfortable? As an artist, I use art to express what's in my soul, I use images to portray what words cannot. There is not only light but dark inside each if us; why then (from personal experience) do people tend to shy away from works that make you feel the darkness? I could sketch or publish works that are constantly cutesy or fuzzy feeling- but I'm not a robot, and have plenty of hurt and scars that also drive me creatively. I use my art as an outlet for that pain. I won't apologise for making someone feel something, because by feeling that emotion, even for a moment, you know what a part of me feels as well- every day of my life. Pictures of sunsets, and beautiful portraits are nice, and nice to look at, but it's important to remember the darkness as well. Through pain and bad experiences we learn strength from the hurt and the scars it leaves us. Why should that not be embraced as well?
