Title

Telling the Truth | Bringing Back Bowery

Coverage

40 E 4th St, New York, NY 10003

Description

A pale blue-grey wash provides the background for this piece, which demonstrates the cycle of metamorphosis in butterflies as a metaphor for change. Two black, white, and yellow caterpillars inch across an arching branch at the top of the piece, to enter a chrysalis on the leftmost part of the piece before becoming a vibrant red, orange, and yellow butterfly at the base of the work. Green leaves complete the cycle to the right of the butterfly.

Text underneath the arching branch reads: "No revolutionary change comes w/out telling the truth." The words "No..." and "...comes w/out telling the..." are painted in yellow, allowing the words "Revolutionary change" and "truth" to stand out in contrasting navy blue paint.
