In the exhibition ?The Stability of Truth? the works are disposed towards a devotion to things as they are, a straightforwardness that is demonstrated when corroborated by the experience of having lived in a place or society that prides itself more on its vigilance and realism and censures any flourish, rhetoric or extravagance of aspiration.  Having to live in a situation of ongoing political upheaval and public expectation is addressed in the exhibition ?The Stability of Truth?. Without needing to be theoretically instructed, consciousness quickly realizes that it is the site of variously contending discourses. Discourses in which one has to arbitrate among promptings that range from the ethical, aesthetical, moral, political, skeptical and cultural, which when taken all together are quite simply impossible. As a defiant statement of art's ability for telling the truth but telling it slant, these artists address a deeper need that is not only pleasurably right and compellingly wise but is at times a retuning of the world itself.
