The Treachery of Images; A Portrait of the Viewer in a Holographic Multiverse
The girl in the painting is Kathryn Breeden. She is also in "Kathryn and Bagel". The stripes represent overlapping screenshots or slices of space-time. Everything in the painting points outside of the painting and is not so much concerned with making the viewer aware of their act of viewing as incorporating their presence in front of the painting into the narrative of the painting. The title invites you to assume the Holographic Multiverse theory is a fact, in which case the painting has three levels of realism: actual paint, the photorealist illusion, and the viewer's lived experience.
