A response to an investigation into the seven deadly sins, this painting is a modern depiction of lust. The red and blue tones, traditionally associated with this particular sin, illuminate the skin of the subject. The mobile phone is as a modern-day twist on Titian's Diana and Actaeon series, however, in this piece, the voyeuristic gaze has become constant, uncontroversial and, through social media, even invited by those objectified.
