A seven-panel oil painting depicted a panoramic apartment inside the artist's mind. Each panel referenced a sin with a self-portrait. The colourful scene and girlish dresses on yellow backgrounds are very playful. But the skeleton peeled off from the skin and eyeball in the flower creates an uncanny scene. Artwork by Jenny Chen.
