Artist's description:

The title comes from the lyrics of David Bowie's song "The Motel" the verse says :
Explosion falls upon deaf ears
While we're swimming in a sea of sham
Living in the shadow of vanity
A complex fashion for a simple man

I'm working on a series of paintings on the theme of Vanity and I thought Bowie's lyrics were just right for this painting.
