While this work may at first appear as a realistic representation of a bear named Red, she is seated in a threshold rendered as ominous and unsettling through tonal contrast, juxtaposition of forms and a representation of space that undermines the conventions of scientific perspective. Red is more than an adorable teddy bear, she is a sweet little soul in a vulnerable place.
