More from the gallery:

Each painting featured in the exhibition explores the relationship between the psychological associations of the color red and the sublimity of masterful realist painting. We invite you to join our investigation into the artists’ use of color as symbolic language.

“Symbolically, red is the color of life. Red attracts us, conveying vitality, warmth, excitement, passion. Its meaning relates, at bottom, to the human experience of blood and fire, the burning energy of human desirousness.”
— Benedikt Taschen, Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images, 2010
