Originally exhibited on September 25, 2007 on Caedes.net, Betraying and the Lying is an abstract desktop wallpaper art piece utilizing found photography and Photoshop brushes. Carefully remastered using AI upscaling and digital preservation techniques, this piece is one of many in my personal vintage computer art exhibition series.
Based on a poem of the same name (featured in my poetry anthology, Monarchs and Hornets), Betraying and the Lying exists without intent or description. Instead, it is a piece based entirely on hate and negative emotion. One reviewer on Caedes.net, Mythmaker, felt as if they "could put [their] fingers into it and slide between the ribbons". Betraying and the Lying is divisive, inviting and delicious.
