Project Description

El Color de la Mentira (The color of a Lie)
Acrylic on canvas
24 “x 24″ | 2015



I had been working with the essential constructs of reality: time, space, light, and energy. In this painting, I opted to do a blue face. Blue is a cold color, and sadness is one of its figurative meanings. A lie always has a touch of sadness or despair. I added some hands trying to reach out and touch. I used textures in the face to give the impression of movement and liquidity; thus, elusiveness is evident in this metaphor of lies. These elements came together to establish a balance between positive and negative.
El Color de la Mentira is an original, one-of-a-kind painting signed by artist Pablo Montes. This work is on Gallery Wrap Canvas with sides of 1 1/2″ thick. This acrylic painting measured 24″ x 24″ and was created in 2015. Painted edges coordinate with the piece; so framing is optional. It’s wired on the back, ready to hang.
