The color red holds a deep significance in many different cultures. In fact, the very notion of "color" is taken from red--the root word for color comes from the latin word for red (coloratus). This is in part because of the emotional weight that the color conveys. Red is the color of passion, fire, strength and beauty. Since red is the color of blood, it is also associated with the idea of life. As such, the color is linked to happiness in many cultures, such as Chinese culture.

In visual art, red, black and white were the first color used in painting. Neolithic cave paintings dating back thousands of years showed herds of buffalo and other animals painted with red hues. Thus, there is potent symbolism in the color's usage throughout art history.

Now, sculptor Glenn Cagandahan tackles the use of the color red in his new exhibition at Galerie Raphael. Entitled "Red," the exhibition features new works from this dynamic sculptor forging a new direction in his career.
