We can thank Joell Jones for TRUTH. It is a marvelous work, truly a work of art. Her images have a lucid transparency and perhhaps the visual medium is more suited to the complexities of “truth” than are the linear dead ends of words. Words are also elusive and change meanings easily (time, place, circumstances, usage, education, etc.). The images, as ever, are archetypal and, in a way, make all the interpetive attempts at veral definitives redundant.
Oddly, when I received this book, I was reading a New Yorker review of a play called “Prayer for My Enemy.” John Lahr, the critic, finishes the review by saying (in the words of the play) “Hell is truth seen to late.” It was with this in mind that I opened this package and was faced with TRUTH. Life is full of the serendipitous.
