Central Red, 2014; egg tempera on calfskin parchment, 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 in.
My last painting of 2014 is not especially festive; it's rather austere in fact, even with the red vertical and horizontal shapes, since grays predominate. What especially interested me in this image was the shallow spaces, the planes layered one atop the other; and the simple geometry of it.
Central Red detail
I hope that there's a sense of air behind the reds, a space before we get to the dark gray surface, with its shadowed shapes. For me there's a world within light and shade, form and shape, which yearns toward something beyond its surface.
