Bold and monumental, Cadmium Red Deep is a striking example of Ron Martin’s examination of the physicality of paint. Across the full breadth of the canvas, his gestural brushwork reveals layers of pigment ranging from transparent to the most opaque red. Pushing the material boundaries of paint and questioning its role as both medium and subject, Martin started working in series of monochromes in the early 1970s. Often experimenting with self-imposed restrictions, he would employ a multitude of techniques, such as pouring a specific amount of paint, or working with his hands or a brush. Through his highly expressive gestures that are reminiscent of action painting, the viewer is explicitly made aware of his manipulation of paint on the surface, creating a strong sense of movement across the canvas. Here, the rich cadmium red is applied in large whirling strokes, revealing its varying textures ranging from thinly scraped to thickly layered on the canvas. Cadmium Red Deep’s rich variety of tones is spectacular, and its force and drama is inescapable.
