Artists have been creating paintings that produce the illusion of real objects for centuries. Trompe l’oeil—from the French phrase 'deceives the eye'—is the art term that describes the effect of their visual deception. Contemporary artists often create an additional level of content by adding visual references relevant to contemporary events, situations, and observations. Nobody’s Fool highlights the work of contemporary artists Kirk Hayes and Michael Bane.
