Red is canonically thought of as the most popular color in art, perhaps more from the consumer’s point of view than the artists, but, regardless of the reason, red attracts. One rarely walks into a gallery featuring a large-scale red painting, without seeing half the visitors crowded around it. something about red excites, it connotes love, passion, fire, and alarm (which is often far more engaging than calm). Perhaps those who are drawn to monumental red artworks are more attracted to consuming passions (both the healthy and the unhealthy kind) and spontaneity, while those who prefer softer blue palettes are more inclined towards calming peaceful pastimes and a contemplative approach to life. For those of us disposed to the former, Jiro tcholakian’s "When Gods and Goddesses Frolic’s" roiling blaze of reds, yellows, and oranges (with a strong emphasis on reds) and impressive scale delivers the painterly passion we desire. And for those who prefer the relaxing tones: nothing looks better next to a blue painting than a red one.
