Truth is defined as Honesty the real state of things FACT But how do we know if there is any truth in the world at all today What if we mistake the actual truth with illusion I do believe that illusion is necessary in human existence I believe that without illusion in the world we would all go mad We use illusion in the form of lies to cover up our mistakes and pain to keep ourselves and others from the actual truth which would be reality We have all at one time told a lie to cover up the truth because in reality the truth hurts So maybe in reality we actually make reality an illusion Remedios Varo Visit to the Plastic Surgeon 1960 is a good example of illusion In this work of art the artist shows you a woman veiled walking into a plastic surgeons office Or is it more than that The woman is very beautifully built we would all kill for a body like hers yet her nose is elongated and disfigured Her actions show that she wants to change she does not accept herself for who she is She wants to create an illusion of beauty like the figure shown in the window The woman that is veiled believes that the woman in the window is the perfect form of beauty and if she changes herself to look like her she will be accepted and beautiful Yet the figure in the window looks very unhappy and uncertain of herself She looks as if she is looking towards the veiled woman in hopes that she will realize that her beauty is created by another person it is not her natural beauty it is just an illusion While the veiled woman looks the opposite direction paying her no mind I believe that the artist is trying to show us that beauty is from within and has nothing to do with outer
