The Discovery of Illusorism (Self-portrait)

In this illustration, I am looking at a cube-shaped structure that could never be built in reality. Accordingly, the position of my hands is illusory and possible only on paper. The structure is a symbol of illusorism. Just a surrealism evolved from realism, I have developed illusorism from illusionism. Since illusorism contorts reality to certain extent, it is also connected to realism; I have illustrated this fact by means of the contorted side walls of the structure.
