‘Scarlet’ is an enigmatic sculpture that captures the viewers attention due to its unusual nature. The style and features of the woman's head recall traditional and academic artworks, whereas the vibrant paintwork shouts out contemporary art; thus the artwork takes the form of a hybrid sculpture that recalls tradition whilst embracing the contemporary. The expression on the sculptures’ face evokes pain and uncertainty, expression that are further accentuated due to its colour.
