    Paying homage to artists such as Joseph Albers and Marc Rothko, Eric Freeman’s Red Inside Green re-devises the metaphysical qualities of abstract painting for a contemporary age. Using contrasting hues, Red Inside Green offers subtle deception through colour perspective, its geometric forms continuously bulging and receding in illusionary space. Seamlessly painted in oil, Freeman’s canvas possesses an artificial vivacity; its ethereal glow reminiscent of plasma screen technology, creating an electrifying aura that is both spiritual and synthetic.
