Yeah, I mean, it's a very philosophical question but, sometimes people ask me why do I always paint dark stuff, what makes dark imagery so interesting? I just can`t answer that question... but my mind just can`t stop creating those kind of images.
If I think about it... I don't even find dark imagery beautiful, when I see paintings by Bouguereau for example, I think "wow, that is beautiful... I don`t paint those kind of subjects" but why? If I tried to paint those kind of images, with angels surrounded by light and stuff, it would feel shallow or artificial, superficial for me to do it, it's not that I don't like light subjects, on the contrary; but it`s like... it's not what I feel like doing... I'm not in the mood to make something like that.
Do you think it's something psychological? do you think painting dark imagery could negatively impact in your life? like, painting light stuff could make you feel happier?
What do you think about this.
