The false chameleon in this serigraph is representing a politician. It is able to pattern the colors on its skin to blend into whatever reality it is next to. I thought this would be a good animal to wrap around a microphone in this chameleon art work. I believe some politicians are honourable, and many others try to be, but there are some politicians that I have heard espousing bizarre versions of reality, purely for political gain. There is a natural tendency to slant a speech in the direction of your beliefs, that is pretty normal, and mostly okay as long as you don’t mess with the facts. But some politicians go so far over the top, that if you have independently researched the topic that they are discussing, and are familiar with the facts, it can literally be jaw dropping to listen to them create an alternate version of reality. This funny political memes is directed at the politicians who’s facts only resemble their political ambition, and not any version of reality.
