“We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies.”
— Pablo Picasso

I think art is a personal vision of what truth is, expressed through whatever creative medium the artist is working with. However, I don't think that 'truth' can be wholly encompassed by 'one person's vision' - or one person's 'opinion'; but I rather through the individual creative process. The artist, and those who experience the artist's work, enter into the 'experience' - the 'exploration' of what truth is. And if one accomplishes this with 'lies', or perhaps with 'illusion' - or 'a-llussion', as Picasso believes, even in a very romanticized, perfected, idealized way, the 'essence of what one realizes' through the vapor of mists, or the seemingly undecipherable examples of modern art, is what is essential to one's perception of truth - and to one's expanding perception of truth, which is perhaps the artist's most sublime task: to show simply what is there that we do not see, or what is not simplistic, but complex and multi-faceted.
