Title not known (Al-Obaidi 2)


Composition of black and red with central cluster of horses and figures


This composition, by Amer Al-Obaidi, is bifurcated into two hemispheres of black and red. The picture plane is otherwise void with the exception of a cluster of figures concentrated at the center of the canvas. This cluster is composed of abstracted human forms indicated only through the stance of the figure and a group of horses rendered with color and form rather than detail.
