The Art of Darkness

“Follow the Shadows” Art Show

Art of Joshua ClayJoshua Clay has a new show opening at thinkspace gallery in Los Angeles tomorrow. He’s also got a site called Follow the Shadows, devoted to the creation of some of his pieces. These are gorgeous and moody and I like his artist’s statement:

I’ve always been fascinated by the things that hide in the shadows. The things that shape the people we are as individuals and as a collective. Shadows walk up walls and under doors, they influence our choices as they hiss in our ears and they cause us to destroy the things we’ve worked so hard to build. Shadows are the life experiences that follow us from one relationship to another, from one lie to the next and from one generation to another. They are the bad choices we refuse to accept responsibility for and the justification of lust and greed.
