Amanda Red by Morel Orta

Amanda Red by Morel Orta


This piece was created during the winter of 2015, a winter with intense snow storms as you may remember, a winter in which everybody in the city was forced indoors, Amanda and I painted a lot that winter. I could even say it was a study in removing layers, in showing what is inside, so when the red color was peeled off the canvas Amanda appeared.
