Artist's Note: The Scarlet Curtain depicts the confusion and melancholy I felt after the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War. It represents the political and emotional turmoil left behind by the battle, demonstrating the harsh impact of informational warfare and the tragic bloodshed that occurred on the battlefield.
