The Spooky Shadow Hiding Within


Illuminated Darkness is the most recent work of talented Turkish artist Yasam Sasmazer. It also happens to be Sasmazer's first solo exhibition ever in the UK. From now to November 4th, the spooky show will be on display at the Aubin Gallery in London.

Sasmazer works with Linden wood and bronze to carve children that represent certain feelings, from raging emotion to naive lust. The artist also makes use of shadows to help convey her message saying, “The shadows represent the darkness in our souls' hidden side and the most frightening part of our personality. The shadow is everything you are but do not want to be.”

If you feel like having your worst fears realized, make sure to stop by her amazing and thrill-inducing exhibition before it's too late.
