CHARCOAL LANDSCAPES BY DANJA AKULIN

I have just stumbled across these stunning charcoal works by Russian artist Danja Akulin. Aren’t they beautiful? His Penumbra exhibition – which explores light and shadow, and the emotions they evoke – will be showing at  Erarta Galleries in London from June 15th to July 14th. In the gallery’s words, “For Danja Akulin the shadow is a place of complete insecurity and the light is a naive confidence in the certainty of knowledge.  He actively avoids giving himself up to one or the other but operates, instead, in the in-between area, the penumbra.”  Erartagalleries.com
