In contrast to the thematic deterioration and decay in 'Erotic eroded land', the series 'Vermilion' explores rebirth and productivity. The curator Irena Gordon wrote of 'Vermilion':
"David Boskovich’s series of paintings unfolds a biographic journey, which revolves around the woman's womb. The image of the womb acts as a formal and thematic starting point for the paintings, which deal with male and female identity, with birth and rediscovery, with infertility and pain, with the idea of love and processes of maturity and aging. The red-orange vermillion pigment, which is dominant in the works, dictates a surrealistic and alienated atmosphere."
