Behind the Veil is an emotive piece representing society’s collective voice that has been figuratively and, in some cases, literally silenced during this year’s Covid outbreak. The depiction of this face partially covered represents the shield we all carry around with us, a mask, a coerced silence. The hidden scars of Covid include suicide, depression, domestic violence, isolation and loss. The muse is a voice for all the children who are enduring the absence of friends, grandparents and family. All the young people dealing with their inner emotions of an uncertain future, silenced and unable to share their inner emotions. Up close these emotions can be hard to see, clouded, but if you step back there is beauty to behold, and a voice worth sharing.
