“Colour is never unimportant,” according to artist Donald Judd.
Louise Bourgeois said that “Colour is stronger than language. It’s a subliminal communication.”
Red is a primary colour.
Throughout history it has had two opposing connotations; good and bad.
It is imbued with emotion – passion, hunger, anger, excitement, danger.
It’s the colour of fire and of blood – energy and life.
In Asian culture it means good luck; in Europe it stands for sex, think of ‘red light districts’;
It implies power and strength – 77% of all national flags include red.
It exists abundantly in nature and is one of the oldest colours used in art.
