Artist's Description

“Illusion is the first of all pleasures.”
— Voltaire

Many of us have heard of the saying that “Life is an illusion.” It is casually declared by many, and with such certainty I might add, as if to imply an understanding of reality. But what does the saying really mean? Is everything really an illusion or is it wishful thinking on the part of humans? Or is it because as T.S. Eliot says, “Humankind cannot bear very much reality,” that we cling to our illusions even if they contradict the obvious?
