The Art of Darkness

The Skeleton in Art

October 12th, 2007 by Cobwebs

The Cheim & Read Gallery in New York has an exhibit entitled, “I Am As You Will Be: The Skeleton In Art.” CoolHunting has a nice feature on the exhibit, including photos of several of the works on display.

I don’t know if I agree with the assessment that skull imagery is a passing trend–perhaps the mainstream fascination with it is–but I certainly agree that, done properly, these are lovely and timeless works of art.
