'Red' by Joanna Layla 2013
Limited edition giclee print in a print edition of 50.
'Red' 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.
'Red' is from a drawing I made of a Chinese soldier standing to attention in Tiananmen Square. China is coloured red… in the propaganda posters, the red army, the lanterns…
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.
