Dark City Witness

The dark side of urban life is part of the ying-yang balance of every major city. In the darkness people come together, get left behind or rush off to unknown destinations. In my work I try to recreate the feeling of being in a city while experiencing this darkness, inflicted upon you by the very existence of the city.

Below three works that are part of the dark city witness series. The dark figures all stand alone in the urban spaces that they share with their fellow urbanites. What are their thoughts, where are the going and how is their life dictated by the city that they live in?
