The Red Arc by Angela Kallus is a series of acrylic relief paintings that embrace a vibrant floral aesthetic. Creating a series of countless perfected blooms, the artist creates realistic rose bud forms and connects them together on a square canvas.

Kallus' relief's feature rose pieces made from acrylic paint. The flowers are intricately made, varying in size and shape. These lush paintings have a tactile feel that resembles a lush rose garden. Made in three colors, the red, yellow and black pieces boast hidden strokes that emerge from a bed of layered flowers.

Though seemingly velvety, the Red Arc by Angela Kallus relief series captures the beauty of roses with a malleable acrylic paint material that is used as a sculptural medium.
