We all have them. Some are kept in diaries, locked away, whilst others come back and haunt us when we least expect it. Some are disguised and protection for good reasons, while others must always remain under lock and key to safeguard the innocent. We are of course referring to the matter of a ‘Little Secret’. Knowledge is indeed, power and power can destroy as well as construct and prosper; so many secrets have their lids kept well and truly on and follow many to the grave and the land of promise that lies beyond. Universally admired contemporary figurative artist, Christine Comyn’s latest visual adaptation for the small screen/large wall space celebrates the ‘Little Secret’, but to what end and promise we don’t know, as she paints a familiar figure of womanhood at the heart of the mystery. Attired in a wonderful, gregarious red dress, a party frock that can doubtless tell a few tales of its own, the young woman ensconced within has borne witness – willing or not – to a secret to end all secrets. Resigned to the deeper recesses of the cranium the second and minute it was apologetically relayed, she must now wrestle her conscious for a week and a day before she decides on the fate of that ‘Little Secret’ playing on her mind.
