These Dark Paintings Portray Women in an Eerie Light

Painter Anji Smith is behind these semi-twisted artworks, which portray women in a darker light. Not only do these paintings consist mainly of dark colors, they also consist of fairly dark content.

In one of these spooky paintings, a smiling woman is portrayed sitting in the dark (seemingly without any pants on). By her feet sits the head of a pale colored horse. It's hard to know what to make of the painting, but it definitely captivates the viewer and holds their attention firmly. While some of these darkly depicted women are smiling, others look quite angry.

There's an unmistakable air of mischief to these artworks. While viewers are left to guess the meaning behind Smith's works, they are still interesting pieces.
