A continuation of the black and white + series, this time with the next color in the color wheel - red.

The artist shows again the opposites of inner and outer life. In this work of art, the outer world, which partially covers the emotions, becomes black and white and cool created like a snowy landscape. But through cracks in this facade, scratches and deliberately left "windows", the underneath becomes visible: glowing red - powerful, like a promise.

This work was also painted over an old work that still shines through here and there and thus contributes to the overall composition. The artist consciously left this reminiscence of the earlier painting in order to pay tribute to the memory. Strongly gestural, thick paint application with translucent brush strokes, thin, delicate lines with thick, incised markings and cold black and white tones alternate with deep, rich red on the surface and complement each other to form a coherent overall composition.
