Seeing Red

How many shades of red are there? Needless to say, there are quite a few. One of the intentions of these abstractions is to contrast and compare several of those many shades. There are analogous colors, oranges and purples but the predominant sphere of color is red. There are also some complimentary greens to contrast with the overall red hue. All three compositions are ways of “seeing red”. A shared compositional element of all three is the use of small blocks of abstract symbols (almost like cartouches but without enclosing ovals or rectangles).
