A Bid to Gain Attention, 2018

The concept of Munchausen Syndrome offers another perspective on lying. When we lie, we can get attention. If we’re good at it, we can even get sympathy. And everyone likes being cared for.

 

Lies have the potential to establish relationships otherwise missing.Of course, they can also destroy relationships. It just takes a keen awareness of your audience and their available compassion.

Are there any more recognizable stories about the difficulties that can accompany lying than that of Pinocchio?  For the puppet-turned-boy, lying is the root of all hardship. He’s dishonest so, his nose grows. Chaos ensues. It’s that simple.

 

As soon as we realize that our noses don’t grow like Pinocchio’s, we appreciate that our lies aren’t always detectable. We can get away with lying if it’s handled carefully. We just have to determine what variables to control in any particular scenario.And that is a powerful insight.

A Constant, Attractive Artifice, 2018

acrylic on panel

1.5 inches in diameter

Framed: 2.375 inches in diameter

 

For some reason, mannequins seemed to be everywhere when I was growing up. Maybe it was growing up during the heyday of malls in America. Nevertheless, with their clearly artificial features, postures, and groupings, mannequins have always been created to illustrate an unachievable version of reality, to establish an envy of something unreal.  

 

They are lies made physical. For a kid of the 1980s, they’re the earliest ancestor of any such effort. And they taught me a great deal about false persuasion. In order to deceive overwhelmingly, you’ve got to support your lies with something tangible.

A Sense of Guilt, 2018

1.75h x 1.50w in

Framed: 2.68h x 2.38w in

I suppose I like to believe that liars know they’re lying. I like to believe it’s a controlled activity. And if they know what they’re doing, I trust that they realize that lying isn’t something everyone does.  

 

Figures like Fred Rogers offer us all an alternative path, away from a life of lying. But being Mr. Rogers surely involves a great degree of discipline or sacrifice. And who has time for that? 

 

Constantly being decent takes focus and energy. Lies are easy. Lies take little effort. Lies happen when we’re sleepy.
