“Like White Ray, Black Red Ray is concerned with subtle shifts on the surface of the painting – in this case the relation between matte versus gloss black. Here a somewhat ethereal and architecturally-inspired structure emerges out of the dark ground, punctuated by vibrant red strokes that move the eye up and down the canvas. The composition, which relies on a cruciform division of the surface of the canvas, gives the impression of something outstretched at its mid to upper points. Although a tonally dark painting, the work gives the sense of a kind of glowing light from within.” — Aschely Vaughan Cone
