Can’t Hide

I saw this piece also at the Pop-Up gallery. It is by Cleveland Dean. I thought it was a very interesting and meaningful piece. It appears to be just a blank painted black canvas. However when you look closely, it says YOURSELF in thin gold block letters. I think that the meaning of this piece is powerful. The word YOURSELF is almost hidden in this painting and the title Can’t Hide also helps emphasize the artist’s point: that although you may try to hide yourself and your true identity, it isn’t possible and shouldn’t occur.
