For and Against The Truth Exhibition in Perth Western Australia

I am extremely excited to be a part of the upcoming For and Against the Truth group exhibition in Perth Australia opening on October 20th. Below are the three pieces I made for the show. Each is 26x50 inches and is made from used books, spray paint, ink and pencil. The shows theme, For and Against the Truth, asked artists to interpret three images of themselves, the truth as others see it, the truth as you see it and the more likely combined truth that mixes the two. Instead of myself, I focused on PublicAdCampaign and used three books for these pieces whose topics represent the spectrum of political realities in which PublicAdCampaign operates. The first is The Merchant Bankers, the second Communism: A Historical Narrative, and the last, Growing Up Absurd. I very much enjoyed giving importance to the books I chose to use and will most likely continue this in upcoming works.
