Wouldn’t it be nice if lie detectors really worked? It’s a fact of life that we can’t rely on external means to secure trust in the ones we love — or even ourselves. Instead, we make ourselves vulnerable to another without any “mechanical” way of verifying that we’ve made a good decision. We rely on our imperfect hearts. And we ask those same hearts to sustain our self-confidence, and guide us in artistic expression.
The painter uses her artist’s eye to see and interpret truth on canvas or paper. But what happens when that interior voice, that inner truth detector, goes missing? As the saying goes, “complications ensue.”
“Moments of Truth” opens September 19 and plays through October 18 at Royce Gallery, 2901 Mariposa at Harrison, San Francisco. Tickets and info here.
