A Halloween Mini-Series: Bloody, Bloody
This year we’re celebrating Halloween by featuring works in our Collection that remind us of classic horror films. With the remake of Carrie in theatres now, let’s start there.
Joseph Marioni is known for his huge, pseudo-monochromatic paintings. Marioni strongly maintains that these paintings are not actually monochromatic, since he uses many different hues as he builds the layers of paint. Regardless, the blood red color of Marioni’s Red Painting got us thinking about the pig’s blood that covers Carrie as she wreaks havoc on her town.
