"Dark Arts 2011" catalog of the Dark Surrealists Art Contest released by Sunbury Press
Sunbury Press and West Shore Gallery have released the catalog of the 2011 exhibition entitled "Dark Arts" containing over 100 works by leading artists in the genre.
By: Christina Steffy
Surrealist art works are the by product of the subconscious mind, often presenting familiar objects in odd forms, positions or settings. If surrealism is experienced in dreams, then dark surrealism is the nightmare experience—illustrating the unimaginable, horrible or disturbing.
Entries for the Dark Surrealism contest were divided into four categories: Paintings, Drawings, Mixed Media/Collage and Digital. Finalists were selected in each category for inclusion in this book and the exhibition. Category winners were selected, along with an overall winner, whose work was determined to be most attractive for the book cover.
This catalog presents the work of the finalists who wished to be in the book. The work is arranged in no particular order. Unless otherwise noted, all of the work is for sale. Prices have not been included in the catalog, but can be found on the information card accompanying each piece in the exhibition. At the time of publication, it was not yet determined which artists would be able to participate in the exhibition, though all finalists were invited.
The following artists are included in this book:
Douglas E Egolf
