Probation

Acrylic, Paper, Photographs, Glass on Canvas

 

This painting is inspired by a dramatic end to a relationship. After dating for more than a year, I discovered by accident that my lover was lying about his age, finances, educational background, and, most importantly, criminal history. He was, literally, on probation.

 

This painting contains a paper caricature done of us at a fair, all of the photos taken during our relationship, and to symbolize fractured truths, mirror shards.
