October 1965  •  Monochromatic Shaped Series

Large Red - 1965 painting by Ronald Davis

Large Red, 1965, 120 x 120 x 4 inches (two shaped panels), Acrylic on Canvas


Large Red was included in my first one-man show at the Nicholas Wilder Gallery in Los Angeles. This show of shaped monochromatic paintings was a radical approach at the time, but differed from minimal art of the period in that the painting shapes were either isometric or one-point perspective illusions.
