I think your gallery is the best gallery I've found so far on dA. To me, it feels as though your paintings are trying to explore the "shadow side" of the human psyche, which isn't always comfortable, or easy to express. You're a very brave and inspiring artist to delve into these kind of tough, unexplored terrains. Most people tend to shun subjects like these, or discussions like the plague, and prefer the pretty, la-die-dah kind of art dA seems to be infected with. You're different, and I applaud you for that. Hats off to you!
