Pablo Picasso once stated, “Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.” By using color, line and form, abstract artists, like Picasso, create works that are considered free from traditional visual references. The deconstruction of the customary form allows the viewer to interpret the art however they desire. This fall, the timeless words of Shakespeare are receiving an abstract spin courtesy of director Jack O’Brien. Macbeth, starring Ethan Hawke, is playing at Lincoln Center Theater until January 12. Steeped in colors of black, blood red and white, this production explores the adverse realities that plagued Macbeth’s mind thrusting the audience into the eye of a nightmare. But do not believe me; see the faces of Macbeth for yourself!
