Artist Kevin Titzer sent us several images of a piece he has in the Gothic Fiction and the Dark Romantics show at Brumfield's Gallery. The show confronts dark themes, that while compelling, under close scrutiny create discomfort and unease. Champions of such tales are often driven by a desire to communicate a blunt truth about our humanity. The grotesque is celebrated; our sympathies, darkest fears, and our ability to empathize with the most wretched are provoked.
The Gothic Fiction and the Dark Romantics group show runs through August 2nd 2014 and features the following artists:
• Jane Andrews
• Michael Barnes
• Michael DeMeng
• Chris Mars
• Kyla Zoe Rafert
• Len Shelley
• Kevin Titzer
