Felrath Hines, Red Stripe with Green Background, 1986, oil on linen, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1986, Dorothy C. Fisher, Gift of Dorothy C. Fisher, wife of the artist, 2011.25.1
Red Stripe with Green Background plays with perception. A field of slightly variant shades of green is divided by red, yellow, and blue horizontal stripes. Above and below, white pyramids pierce the green plane, offering optical "windows" to a space beyond. The slightly off-center elements seem like playful dancing forms that speak to freedom and the joyousness of the human spirit.
