The colour red has many layers and many stories to tell.
Red is a very emotionally intense colour. It increases metabolism, increases breathing and blood pressure.
It has a vivid and powerful influence on a person’s personality and emotions.
Red is often associated with desire, energy, power, warmth, intimacy, fire, love or passion and with attack and conquest. It also symbolises negative concepts: arrogance, danger, blood, struggle, sex, war and anger.
Wearing red clothing exudes militancy and strength and draws attention to the person, as does bright red lipstick.
Giving or receiving a single red rose is always a special gift, I think.
Exposing your beautiful warm red heart shows vulnerability.
Getting a big red drawn heart from my son, as a sign of his love for me.
In short, the colour red has many layers that we all fill in and experience in our own way.
What does this Red art work say to you?
As a substrate for the 3D works, Carry uses Plexiglas sheets or steel-welded frames with painter’s canvas over them. She then builds up the work on this in various layers, with transparent tulle, metal mesh or organza silk. This can be a figurative or abstract image, such as faces expressing a feeling, or graphic shapes.
Materials; acrylic paint and spray, brushes, scalpel, scissors and sewing machine or embroidery by hand, where she uses a thick thread.
“Elevating everyday material into poetic and meaningful work,” she calls it herself.
