the truthfulness of lies



This is an attack on reality. 
Earlier this morning this piece had dark blue water and a bright blue sky, a reality that mocked me. 
Picasso famously said ' we all know that art is not truth. 
Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth'. 
I had to destroy the reality I had and find a better one.
As I covered the dark watery blue with peachy whites everything changed, The blue sky called for yellow and the figures went orange.  


I work fast to avoid thinking, pulling intuitive decisions from within. 
After all, no-one can fly slowly.
