A pioneer of both the Dada and Surrealist movements, Ernst’’’’’’’’s artistic vision was highly influenced by his traumatic experience as a soldier in Germany during World War I. Highly critical of Western culture and viewing the modern world as irrational, the artist devoted his artistic practice to the exploration of the unconscious and a critique of social conventions. The present work, through its title, references the artist’’’’’’’’s autobiography titled Biographical Notes, also known as Tissue of Truth, Tissue of Lies. In the book, Ernst writes about his experiences in third person, a technique inspired by Freud's revealing of one's own self by understanding the unconscious. In addition, throughout Ernst's œuvre, the image of the bird theme recurs from time to time in various guises as Hornebom, Dadamax or Loplop, in all instances presenting the alter ego of the artist and becoming part of Ernst’’’’’’’’s personal mythology. In this work, one bird and one fox are depicted against a colourful but confined cage. The bird can be seen as a symbol of freedom, human potential and flights of fancy on one side, and a symbol of entrapment and a victim on the other. The fox, often associated with a trickster, is an ultimately predatory and devouring force. The two mysterious animals emerge from the alienating environment seem trapped in their own fate. Utilizing a flattened pictorial style that recalls a kaleidoscopic vision, Ernst has created a fragmented reality that perhaps reflected post-war sentiments throughout Europe. Through years of creative practice in his painting skills, Ernst has arrived at a point where he can allow the forms of his subjects to grow more or less where they like and to define themselves.
