Ralph Kerle - The Art Collection
Red Sky on A Scarlet Night
The artwork is a photograph of the hull of a yacht and the reflection of the colour of the hull on the surface of the water. The artwork pays homage to the school of abstract expressionism known as the colour field painting and in particular the works of one of the movement’s founders, Mark Rothko. The Australian artist, Fred Williams Infinite Horizons series - a series of Australian landscapes - can also be seen as an influence on the artwork.
