Diary from the Dark present intimate and emotive drawings by contemporary Myanmese artist, Aung Ko. These drawings take their reference from past journalistic pieces featured in international news magazine Newsweek which he had collected over the years. In states of meditation and a reflection of his state of mind, Aung Ko chose these pictures. They range from pieces featuring personalities such as Saddam Hussein, Pol Pot and Timothy McVeigh to the successful cloning of the lamb Dolly, mummies from Mexico and the dominance of Bill Gates through Microsoft. Mostly projecting airs of anguish, these drawings echo and tease our mortal sentiments and soulful, in reaction to both global and personal calamities for which we seem to have mindful solutions for, but never able to apply and put problems to end.
