We don't question it anymore

My art is saying that some families wear masks everywhere even at home and that there's nothing wrong with that but it almost feels abnormal to go back to the days where we didn't need masks or where we could go on holidays without a needing a vaccine. To see somebody not wearing a mask in a shop feels and looks strange. And we've gotten used to not knowing people's expressions and feelings. Just seeing their eyes tell you nothing. That's why in my artwork their faces are blank.
