The Impossible Reveal (Black Curtains)
by Anne Faith Nicholls, 2019
Acrylic on Canvas, 30” x 48”
The Impossible Reveal is a minimal, yet symbolic painting about truth-seeking, revelation and tenacity, depicted through infinitely repetitive hands, endlessly trying to pull back an unyielding curtain. Perhaps a commentary on social structures or personal identity, never-ending layers suggest multiple levels of meaning, and a constant search for the truth of what really happens “behind the curtains”.
