I'm currently in an ATC swap for Art On The Darker Side. To me, the Darker Side isn't so much dark but emotional, raw and REAL. It is the side of us that doesn't live by societal rules. It's where our deepest emotions reside. A place where we are truly ourselves, imperfections, hang ups and all. Creating so called "darker art" can be very powerful & freeing. It can also make some people feel very uncomfortable when confronted with the rawness of another's emotions. But, art is all about feelings, both negative and positive. I for one embrace that.
