Raymond Parker established himself as an artist who explores the relationship between color and surface. His art is characterized by forms of color placed against a neutral background. In the early 1960s, Parker began to focus on the element of line along with color. Curling Red depicts ribbon-like shapes in bold red, yellow, blue and green against a vibrant blue background that appears to play the role of background and foreground simultaneously. The shapes are placed off-center and bleed to the edge of the canvas but never touch each other.
