    About The Work

    Putting in mind Mark Rothko's large, monochromatic fields of color, this magisterial painting by Barnaby Furnas presents a sweeping and audacious experiment in abstraction. That said, the work does not entirely depart from the territory of representation. As part of his celebrated Floods series, the work evokes biblical narratives—the red stain could be interpreted as blood in some apocalyptic scene, or else a deluge flooding the picture plane.
