Andreas Kountoureshis - Deception
The artwork Deception, made by Andreas Kountoureshis, refers to matters that have outcomes contrary to expectations, not necessarily due to inability but because of lack of effort. In an imperfect materialistic world, we often fall in the trap of the illusion of potential where perfection is all but myth to be chased. Staged in a simple room where inertia's force overtakes prospective, the figure is stripped off as integrity wanders to the unknown. Through heavy brush marks around the bed and figure, solidity of form suggests a stability of matter yet the wave's wash sweeps away all daydreamer's notions. Holding onto a string of thoughts won't stop the world from spinning.
