What we see isn’t always what we get. Perspective often determines whether we are the player or the one being played. Like a convincing drawing, Play the Fool relies on illusion to create the perception of mass and motion. A viewer’s vantage point makes all the difference between what he or she perceives is real and what is simply an optical manipulation.

Exhibited in Versions of Truth, Gallery 1740, Atlanta, GA, 2018.
