Artwork Description

Truth, Like Gold
"Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold." Leo Tolstoy
This painting catches different lights at different times of the day or night. Gold leaf on a textured canvas, with paint washed away - to suggest the glimmers of brilliance that truth casts, and the dark spaces imposed by nuances of truth and/or deception.
Monochrome in gold and black (with venetian red tones).
The colour gold, like truth, represents success, achievement and triumph. Associated with abundance and prosperity, luxury and quality, prestige and sophistication, value and elegance, the psychology of this colour (and of truth) implies wealth and freedom.
