Dark art can be controversial; it is certainly misunderstood. While it presents themes and imagery that can be difficult to confront, its beauty lies in giving voice to the struggles many people face both internally and within relationships to others and the outside world in general. Dark art does not shy away from pain or struggle: it acknowledges it and even celebrates victory over it. And that is what makes the confrontation enriching for the viewer: that and, of course, the beauty inherent in the work itself.
