Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes
In Bright Red #2, Ronald Martin’s belief in the possibility of paint to act as subject matter is evident, as he focuses on the manipulation of his material to create a work exclusively concerned with the physicality of paint. In the catalogue for the 1973 National Gallery of Canada exhibition where 14 of Martin’s red paintings were shown, Martin states that colour can “be totally representational of both its being and its appearance.” During the 1950s and 1960s, the art world experienced a period of anxiety regarding the adequacy of art to translate meaning from the artist to the viewer. Reminiscent of the Action Painting of previous decades, the vibrant red paint applied in whirling strokes results in an exciting experience for the viewer. Martin conveys the movement of his body in his composition, and the gestural shapes create an active and moving composition made even more vibrant by his red-hot hues.
