Scarlet Opia: Bridging Distance with Art in the work of Alexandra Lee

Scarlet Opia by Alexandra Lee

              There’s so much beauty in peoples’ faces. With COVID-19 spreading, the face has become an alien thing. “Do not touch your face,” the news says, “Stay six feet apart.” The problem with “six feet apart” is that you fail to see the finite details. People are more than just carriers of a virus, and this piece is meant to be a reminder of our humanity – a reminder of the face behind the mask.
