Adding red artworks when decorating your home or office
1 February, 2023

Henri Matisse said: “Art should be something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue.”

Among its powers, art is a salve. To the French painter and master colorist, Henri Matisse, it represented both emotion and relief. The last oil painting he finished called “Large Red Interior” tells of the potency of red within our environments which creates an enduring impact.

We have shown you some examples of how images with red can enhance your home, not to mention your spirit lifting. You will see we have deviated from our usual gallery style framing and have used different coloured frames and mountboard, to add more definition and interest.

All the artworks shown are available from the gallery.

After 18 years in the IT industry, Doreen decided to surround herself on a daily basis by photography that she loves which led to the establishment of The Cow Artworks in 2004. In March 2006 she opened the gallery in Parkhurst and has thrived in this beautiful space. Her passion for travel affords her the opportunity to take photographs, particularly candid shots of street scenes, graffiti and architecture.
