Artist's description:

Expressionist oil painting mainly painted with palette knife, on a rollered slate black background.

This is the latest in the "Mask" series of oil paintings.

We all wear masks in our daily lives to protect our vulnerabilities, but if if you look closely enough these vulnerabilities are always seeping out, the mask is always, sometimes imperceptibly, slipping to reveal more than we would like.

In this painting, the vulnerabilities are part of the mask as if the model is wearing his vulnerabilities on the outside not trying to keep them in.
They are there for all to see.

Evil is committed in small, seemingly insignificant steps, incrementally. Evil is a mosaic of little added pieces, justified as being added in isolation, not related to the whole.
Their contribution to an overall picture or state of affairs rationalised into denial. Still Evil is done by many small incremental steps. The mask of complacency, arrogance and denial cannot mask or hide this.
