Perfection Does Not Exist is a one-of-a-kind modern art painting by artist Janet Antepara.
Perfection Does Not Exist is based on an abstract daydream I had about expecting perfection in a world where perfection does not exist. I use a lot of symbolism to convey the feeling of disappointment, martyrdom, and loneliness the frivolous pursuit of perfection leads to. The title of the painting is written in chalk, mimicking writing lines on a chalkboard as punishment in elementary school. The shadow of a person with a silver halo is seen, melting into a whirl of blue darkness. They are standing under what used to be the perfect tree, in front of a perfect picnic setup with a perfect red tablecloth that is now violently being lifted away into the heavens where it meets a caged moon, encompassed by darkness. The cages flying between the trapped moonlight and the martyred shadow represent negativity and impossibilities. The moral of the story is… no one and nothing is perfect.
