Poetry in the Dark is a painting that wants to express the experience of listening to poetry with closed eyes and should not be confused with a focus upon dark poetry.

Dark poetry wants to capture sorrow, pain, the fragility of life, grief, death, anxiety, rage, despair, loneliness, jealousy, doubt, heartbreak, and betrayal while I want also to include the poetry of light and laughter in this visual impression.

Poetry is a highly sophisticated art form that involves a deep empathy with the language as an experimental tool to express deeply felt intellectual and emotional thoughts.

Poetry in the dark wants to evoke the words of a poetic text that escape their literary confinement to circle around the receptive mind in similar ways as moths are attracted to the light of a candle.
