'Yellow' by Joanna Layla 2013

Limited edition giclee print in a print edition of 50.

'Yellow' is from the 'Red is for...' print series. Each image in the series is inspired by original drawings I made in my sketchbooks capturing life in China at the start of 2013, and by Chinese Colour theory.

'Yellow' is inspired by a drawing I made of a Chinese toy factory worker.

Chinese colour theory inspired me to think about how colours affect our reading of an image and in this series of illustrations a prism of colour in each image prompts the viewer’s eye to make a reading of the image - to ‘colour in’ the drawing in their mind’s eye.

Yellow has a wealth of meanings in Chinese visual language including beautiful, prestigious, the centre of everything, earth and gold. I liked placing this colour on an image of factory production to question the value we place on mass-produced items.

The ‘Red Is For…’ Series explores Chinese colour theory through 5 illustrations and 1 colour code. Chinese colour theory is based on five key colours that correspond to states of being / emotions / seasons / meanings.

For more see the Chinese Colour Theory code print in this series.
