Endorsements

The “dark arts” is an exploration of images mainly associated with mortality – concerning issues most people prefer to leave hidden in the shadows; in the ground.

 

However, if you were to look deeper, there is often a peaceful mindfulness to be found, as the artist seeks out what is not only hidden in the earth, but also hidden in the mind. If you venture out of your comfort zone to appreciate the images by the fantastic artists in this book, you can see what lies beneath, making it possible to grow closer to the truth of us all.
