“Black” - International Call For Artists and Writers


Many shades of black colour our lives. Black paints many idioms and expressions including black market, blackmail, blacklist, black sheep, black and white, black and blue, in the black, black thoughts, and black holes.  It is technically the absence of visible light, but we often sense it best in contrast to light and colour.  Does black reference darkness, mourning, the end, secrets, magic, evil, elegance, authority, or solemnity?  The interpretations of black are diverse.  Share your shades of BLACK with words or images.
