Inspired by Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #3, “Scarlet” is a game of perspectives that distributes to the viewer and the people involved in the scene different pieces of the same puzzle; the secret of the portrayed woman. Startled by the sight of someone (perhaps a parent or a husband) down the street, the woman ensures whoever she is looking at does not glimpse the man present in her room. The observer can however guess what is going on inside from the
front-view access he has into the window. From the way the woman is covering herself, and from the unbuttoned shirt the man is wearing, one could guess a secret affair was going on.
