Personal exhibition “Dark”, Green Sofa Gallery, Lviv

This painting exhibition is a continuation of the series of works from the present period of the artist Petro Smetana. In this series he explores dark as a color of the present, as a concept, and a form of expression.
The artist writes about his darkness as follows:
“Dark is the phenomenon that remains after bright flashes of light. Dark, which slowly swirls in the air and slowly falls, coloring everything with itself. Dark is an obligatory and forced phenomenon of our present. Dark is the soot from which it all began, as the primordial archetype. And soot is a result of destruction. Dark is the stage before birth”.
At the “Dark” exhibition in our gallery we will present completely new works of monumental, often several meter formats. Petro showed the first part of this creative stage in the “White World” gallery in Kyiv in October-November 2023.
