The false face of sin obscured


Right and wrong seem to be an inborn trait to humanity. It as the intellect grows responsibility seems to wither. A deep need develops to avoid shame and guilt at all cost and to rationalize our wrongdoings. We campaign to others that our way is the path of light and what they used to understand as good is now all darkness. When you find your values challenged, be sure to look past the false face of the messenger and see what sins have been obscured. - Mark Humes, The Book Of Lost Verses: Book 9

"The false face of sin obscured." is digital abstract art created by Mark Humes using a color palette of red, orange, yellow, blue, purple, cyan and black depicting a lesbian orgy obscured by abstract imagery molding the image into a face in the center of the image.

 As I began my construct, I put a deep consideration on the idea of perception.

Realizing we tend to draw conclusions based on our first glimpse of an object gave me the cipher to create illusions.

The obfuscation of anything becomes quite simple when you learn to play on the human senses and can recruit others to believe a falsehood.

The human theme of telling a lie and getting other to swear to it is not new. But shockingly we never assume it is anyone's first approach.

I felt the need to create an analog displaying this. Hiding sin in plain sight. Gaining a consensus on a surface view making all disregard what lay beneath.

The lesson is this, always look below the surface and see to it your values are unchangeable or you could find yourself swept away by a tide of situational morality and trapped in a cage of illusions.

This work of art will be a feature in my book, The Book Of Lost Verses: Book 9 and is currently available as a print at Mark Humes Gallery.
