In Search of Truth is a remarkable, visual story that portrays a human’s pursuit of answers to eternal questions – What is truth? Where can it be found?

Bregeda sets the stage as an abstract landscape of books, representing the sum of all knowledge. We observe several men on a philosophical mission to study the infinite texts. Can truth be found in the knowledge?

We see several ladders that are Bregeda’s symbols of both mental and spiritual growth. However, some of the other codes are not as straightforward.

It is impossible to conclude whether we are looking at the rugged mountainous terrain or the raging sea. Is the flying book being tossed down to the pile or is it merely drifting in the air? Is the man climbing up or down the rope ladder? What is the significance of the leaf bookmarks? As with most Bregeda paintings, there are more questions than answers.

In this work, Bregeda steps away from his traditional depiction of God the Father and introduces us to the luminescent image of God’s presence – the face of Truth.

This piece denotes the same journey that Victor has traveled over his lifetime. This has led him to the creation of many profound artworks, in reflection of his faith.
