Yes, this is one of my paintings and you may be surprised to see a very different artistic side of me. I used to do a great deal of painting from my imagination and this seemed to be an appropriate way to meet the challenge when I was invited to participate in a show at Duke University.
Twenty artists were chosen to submit a work representative of some of the research on "Cheating" by Dr. Dan Ariely, James B. Duke professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics. The artists then attended a Dishonesty Forum at The Center For Advanced Hindsight in Durham, where Dan spoke about some of his research. In my painting, I considered various cheating behaviors, and characters involved in this behavior. The Ten Commandments are in the painting, since one of the findings in the experiments on cheating was that some type of reminder of morals or ethics has the effect of lowering the incidence of cheating. Take a look at Dan Ariely's blog- it is quite interesting.
