These are acrylic paintings on canvas paper, they depict a people facaded by a melting mask of animals. This work was made in a series of three pieces, each depicting a different animal.
The mask represents the lies humans tell to disguise their true intention. The puma represents the false cunning and beauty a human might lie about in order to appear greater than their true self. In turn lying to themselves, this is shown through the distressed aesthetic of the image, as if the mask is just barely grasping on to his face, while he slowly lets it melt.
