The Inferno’s dominant color is red. It is a dominating masterpiece whose presence on the wall will not go unnoticed. However, having few flowing, flirty elements, it makes its impact in a quiet, slow way. The dark red, almost brown color at the base of the piece gives it the foundation we need to connect our own implicit reality with the surreal world of the Inferno. The glowing golden and turquoise areas at the top give the eye a place to rest from the intense heat of the massive red furnace in the middle part. The subtle, crossing veins penetrating the red are puzzling and give it the feeling of an imminent change.
The Inferno is a natural fit for a red wall of a darker hue. On a light background it can be overwhelming, but this can be used to an advantage if displayed in a large, high gloss variant in a lobby of a company where it will alert the visitors that they are walking into a place where the business is red hot.
Notice that the natural shape of the masterpiece is square. It will not lend itself well to a rectangular crop, and sizes larger than 12×12 will have to be special ordered.
