14MariaRedIt’s a small painting, only about 12” x 14”.  As you look at it here, try to imagine it large, say 36” x 48”.  We react differently to paintings, depending on their size.  Small looks precious and controllable.  A large painting envelopes us, becomes part of the atmosphere.  Perhaps this work by Maria Palacios will inspire a larger incarnation of itself.

Not all languages have words for the same colors. But every language has a word for red, along with white and black.  Think of all the associations we have for red: blood, passion, danger, warning, stop, anger, love…strong stuff.

No doubt, this painting needs to be big.
