Todd's dramatic new collection captivates with a strong and intriguing narrative. Although on the surface his cast of players are all about fun and flirtation, a close look shows a darker side.

"The new release of Saints and Lords, Black Tie Optional and White Tie Affair is all about anonymity - the tool which allows you to give free rein to your desire ...
We all have our little dark desire and I think throughout history the way people have accepted that dark desire is by masquerading - covering up with masks. In literature and film the mask is iconic. There's a reason why all our superheroes wear a mask as well as the criminals they pursue. Wear a mask and it gives you permission to do what you really want to do with no inhibitions because it hides who you are. If you can't see me I was never there. Welcome to the party pal."

"She's dressed in the traditional bad guy garb of all black - wearing it with confidence. But she's also hidden under a black wing boa ... hiding in plain sight?"

"Two powerful words together. How much of the world has been changed by these two words? Here in the painting we have a level playing field and it's not clear who's running who. But you know who has the power here don't you? Across a wide spectrum of colors in a wild careless setting, this is one party that you want to be at ... but who will you be behind your mask?"
