The Red Park
The painting depicts an area of common recreational area known as the 'Meadows', near the University. The painting has a macabre feel with the use of dark reds and black. An area of Edinburgh that usually is an abundant of green grass has been painted with an apocalyptic tone. To the left of the work is a ghostly waiter carrying a silver tray. A man lies prostrate on the floor in striped pyjamas. In the centre of a painting a woman sits on a green bench. The figures haunt the 'Meadows' as members from Kondracki's and the viewers past.
