Ceci n’est pas une merde.


Acrylic painting on canvas.

This painting seems more relevant now then ever, when the render of reality is blurred and negative statements became a new tendency in building our perception and the representation of truth. How one translates it’s own reality, communicates meaning and emotion is highly diverse.

It evokes a subtle psychological conflict when juxtapositioning the title,  model and her “fashionable hat”.



A humorous play on Magritte’s Ceci n’est pas une pipe. 

A negative sentence states that something is not true or that is incorrect. “The Negation Rule: In English, in order to claim that something is not true, you form a negative sentence.” Although it does not require to actually be accurate or true; they’re simply statements from a speaker or writer that are believed to be untrue.
