Red Mannheim by the British artist Mark Alexander

“…The weeping infant figures of Adam and Eve in British artist Mark ALexander’s Red Mannheim (a large silkscreen inspired by the fragments of an Eighteenth-century altarpiece by the German artist Johann Paul Egell that was shattered in the Second World War) vibrate a haemoglobin glow that also seems simultaneously to flow from the body and the soul.” – excerpt from A New Way of Seeing: The History of Art in 57 works
