Abstract/Artist Statement

It is common, unspoken, knowledge that parents lie to their children. The reasons will vary, depending on the intentions of the adult. They may be driven by deceit and malice or love and protection. But does this justify their actions? The products for Pants On Fire exposes these "white" lies to the public in the form of playful hand-drawn scenarios. The scenarios reveal how easy it is for parents to get away with serious issues such as adultery, emotional abuse, and drug abuse. The protagonists are the victims—the innocent children. The products dabble into the closed doors of society. Though they may be humorous, they are controversial. Pants On Fire has given the public a shocking look into the parental world's unspoken sin.
