Gazmend Freitag: The red bed, 2014, oil on canvas, 100 x 120 cm
The red bed
Red, white and green form the stage on which a young woman appears to lie lost in thought before or after lovemaking. Clean shapes and extensively applied colours create a sense of powerful feelings. The angle of bed and body put the viewer right into the scene. At the same time the tilt of the head and the expression of the face suggest wistfulness at odds with what is happening. A masterful painting in the style of Post-Impressionism.
