Artwork Description

This is yet another edition in my reclaimed art series "How to aggravate the elderly". The title of this work refers to the contemporary values of people and the way we highlight the elements of our lives and others that we like, or find beautiful and appealing and ignore the dull, boring, bitter, painful or mundane. The background of this artwork was a dull mix of faded baby blues, creams and tan colours...so i filtered it out, and drew attention to the features that were more redeemable within the artwork, birds, flowers, and a pretty whimsical girl. This represents the way we hide our problems, and amplify the features we decide are important. Black out the boring, highlight the beautiful...like a snapchat filter that removes blemishes and adds a gorgeous glow to our features. This painting is a lie, covering up a mundane truth.
