Lies that were once the Truth

Acrylic, conté, charcoal on found cotton canvas and silversark, 149 x 139cm


Artist Statement

“During this pandemic, perhaps before, I have watched as truth has disintegrated, crumbled, been reduced to false truth, fake truth, and finally, lies. Then purveyed into the face of those who won’t hear, won’t see.
This painting addresses the written lies that can’t be read, the spiritual power of truth, the aftermath for our whole planet and the possibility of hope through transformation.”
