The Secret Lives expands on the Tangles concept. In daylight, each painting presents a particular group of people and the outward perfection they project; however, a black light exposes a back painting, uncovering their inadequacies, secrets and psychoses. This series investigates the intersection between the public and private persona, revealing the forces that compel some to seek fame, relinquish it — or get caught in its trappings.

All are acrylic on 39″ x 39″ canvas.
