Hysterical Minds Expression 8.0: Shadowness

Big news today, as the artgroup Hysterical Minds released its 8th exhibition in collaboration with the art community Shadowness based on a dark theme for the artists to develop their works. In this post I have a small collection of the works published in this exhibition, if you like this you really should take the time to view all the artworks.

We, the members of the art collective Hysterical Minds have enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with the art community Shadowness on a unique project and we are very excited to show the product of our best effort up to date. This monster, our eighth expression, called HM8:SHADOWNESS, is an exhibition where each artist has made a personal vision of his darkest side and the general idea of shadowness, through different styles and a big variety of concepts, creating an intense and homogeneous set, of a tremendous quality and facing the tough challenge of raising a qualitative step in our growing dynamics, reasons why, together, we are sure it will be a huge success. 

Focused on more illustrative esthetic dynamics and in a dark concept, aimed to affront a dark-themed artbook project forthcoming commissioned by a publishing company, we had developed this expression halfway between the usual way of elaborating groupal exhibitions of art collectives, on one hand, and a work dynamic similar to a commissioned proffessional illustration studio, on the other hand, trying to be successful at one time in this two-way project, maintaining the homogeneity but keeping some balance and diversity, and enhancing the constructive criticism and creative direction more than ever in our group, putting it difficult to ourselves. We hope that the public understands the dual focus that will characterize the outcome of this exhibition, and that enjoy the product of our efforts. 

Shadowness, as a concept itself, we thought it is enough subjective to be an expositive elaboration theme in itself, allowing a big variety of interpretations, visions and forms of expression, and enough ambiguous to elaborate certain works representing the spirit of the Shadowness.com community and others more focused on the specifications required for the future book, without a large gap between the two approaches and both would being agglutinated in the same display as part of a whole. From Hysterical Minds we would like to thank Meng To and all the other members of the Shadowness community for all your attention, help, support and good work, and for bringing us the opportunity to work together and demand a bit more to ourselves.
