Dark / Light

An intriguing selection of works from local artists on a universal theme...

For the 15th Annual Common Ground – an exhibition of work by artists living in the Midlands - we settled on the theme of "Dark / Light"...

 

The contrast of DARK and LIGHT is a powerful way to bring attention to your focal point. The viewer's eye will follow this contrast, helping to draw their eye into the art.  

The use of extreme contrasts of light and dark in figurative compositions heightens their dramatic effect.  

 

The contrast between Dark and Light is dramatic, with numerous degrees of tones ranging from the darkest of darks to brightest of light and everything in between.  Dark / Light can refer to artwork visually, but can also be reflected in the work's content: Is art a method to confront darkness in one’s mind, or is it a way to bring light in?

This exhibition allows artists the opportunity to interpret the theme in their own unique way, resulting in creative harmony that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit. 

And what's even better is that all the artwork is up for sale (Just in time for some superb Christmas presents!)

Explore the Art
Our curator hand-picked 48 artworks from over 20 local Artists. Through the medium of oils, acrylics, digital photography, ceramics and other media, they all explored the fringes of the visible world.

Each individual artist exposed a detail magnified it and rendered it through his or her own personality.

You can take in the whole exhibition in the foyer of the Theatre every day from 1pm to 5.30pm. Or you can explore it virtually here.
