Faux Reality



Title: Faux Reality
Year Completed: 2011
Size: 18” x 24”
Technical: Oil on canvas

In a world driven by fame, materialistic gains and pseudo satisfactions, people put on two masks every moment. The one portrayed outside is white one, claiming the authenticity of the character. However, it’s the other face deep inside which drives the game. It’s the faux reality of gains which distinguishes between the faces. The real face is shown only when the character is in self-criticizing mode in a rational thought process, where it asks itself about what was right or wrong morally and ethically. It’s the acceptance of genuine reality which can nullify the faux reality since one is accountable to itself only at the end of the day.
