Truth

TRUTH art nude of Liz Ashley by A.D. Cook

2012, 60″ x 36″ [152.40 cm x 91.44 cm], root beer colored acrylic pearls on specially-prepared pearlized canvas

Completed on May 20th and signed during the solar eclipse, “Truth” is my fourth figurative painting for 2012, and features the beautiful Liz Ashley as my muse. Bold and powerful, Truth stares you straight in the face as she stands naked before you. Hard to deny that she is always there to remind you of her constant presence.

Created in beautiful pearl metallic rootbeer colored tints over a pearl white hand brushed base layered on a specially-prepared canvas surface. Metallic mediums mixed into my paints create a glistening effect with the changing light, creating a new experience with each viewing. In this painting, my muse is portrayed about 1-1/2 times life-size.

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty – that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” — John Keats

The I Ching top right graphic represents “Inner Truth”. The hexagram consists of firm lines above and below, while open in the center. This indicates a heart free of prejudices and therefore open to the truth. On the other hand, each of the two trigrams has a firm line in the middle: this indicates the force of inner truth in the influences they represent. The attributes of the trigrams are above = gentleness, forbearance toward inferiors; below = joyousness in obeying superiors. Such conditions create the basis of mutual confidence that makes achievements possible.

Within the I Ching graphic I’ve placed the binary code for “TRUTH”

T – 01010100
R – 01010001
U – 01010101
T – 01010100
H – 01001000

The graphic to the bottom right reads “We Are All Born Naked” in binary code:

W – 01010111
E – 01000101

A – 01000001
R – 01010001
E – 01000101

A – 01000001
L – 01001100
