Boomer Gallery presents the 1st edition of “The Dark Side”, an exhibition featuring artists from all over the world.

 

Everyone is welcome. No RSVP!

 

Does a latent shadow reside in the heart of artistic creation and within the souls of the artists themselves?

 

If any figure could parallel the introspective solitude of a monk, it is the visual artist. Though it may stir debate, let us reflect. Consider the profound solitude, the palpable stillness of the studio where silent hours merge into days, as the artist labors and broods over their craft, fervently hoping for the world to awaken to the brilliance of their ideas, to feel the pulse of their passion embedded in their work.

 

In this sacred space, sanity often hangs by a delicate thread. In that dim studio corner, the artist’s once cherished chair becomes a silent sentinel, marking the site of internal battles. Here, in the quiet chaos reminiscent of Van Gogh’s own torments, the artist faces the relentless inquisition of their worth, questioning their identity with every fleeting moment: Is my art a true reflection of my essence?

 

The exhibition aims to bridge the gap between the artist’s secluded atelier and the broader world, illuminating the enigmatic beauty that thrives in the shadows.

 

Casting light upon our exhibition is the globally celebrated art critic, Tabish Khan, who will grace our opening event on the 9th of February, delivering an insightful speech on the exhibition’s theme. Mr. Khan will also write an article about the exhibition, to be published in the well-known FAD Magazine.
