The Lure of the Dark
Contemporary Painters Conjure the Night
Sex, death, romance, magic, terror, wonder, alienation, and freedom: the night invites a myriad of often contradictory associations. For centuries, painters have been drawn to the mysteries and marvels of the night and its perceptual and poetic possibilities. The Lure of the Dark features over a dozen artists who conjure the many moods of night as well as the light that illuminates the darkness – from the moon and the stars to candles, cigarettes, and the glow of cell phones.
