In Greek Mythology, the myth of Narcissus was painted by Caravaggio in the Baroque period, depicting a boy staring into his own reflection. The story goes that he dies of thirst from staring at his own beauty for too long. This idea of self obsession that goes too far is relevant in a culture full of social media. The women shown are wrapped in LED rope while they gaze into their own reflection; hinting at the fact that the technology that surrounds us is what keeps us locked into focusing on our own image / reflection. The style of realism was chosen to clearly depict the scene as much as possible, allowing the viewer's eye to travel around the painting around the neon light rope, and then back at the figures who are all staring back at themselves.

Luke Mack is an American painter who has exhibited in the United States. His works have also been featured in publications such as Vice and Create Magazine. Mack’s art takes a critical viewpoint of western society and culture, as well as delving into themes that concern the effects of technology, bad habits, spirituality, and otherness. Combining figurative realism with abstract elements, his process usually begins with a photograph. After digitally editing and distorting the image, he transfers it onto canvas using oils.
