Yellow, along with red and blue, is a primary color. Admixed with other primary colors, and in its analogous and tertiary forms, yellow is the foundation for brightness.
According to color experts, yellow denotes creativity, hope, and optimism. It is also more adaptable than one might think: muted yellows can have a cooling effect, while darker or mustard yellows can present as more serious and contemplative.
The Curators' Palette: Yellow Art
Yellow has a special role as a conveyor of clarity. As part of your home wall decor, it can introduce atmospheres of happiness, and in darker values, fill out your space with a friendly but deep and rich color.

Abstract Yellow Artworks
Yellow, as an incarnation of energy and optimism, lends itself to abstract art which presents itself as a play on these primal natural energies and forces. Characteristically present in brighter tones, yellow also commonly buoys themes and subject matter which speak to the playful, and sometimes even paradoxically cynical aspects of abstract art.
In Sonja L.'s pop art works, color is familiar, but exaggerated. The eye is drawn to bright yellows, which are practically synonymous with lighting, whether in the foreground or the background.
Spotlight on Flowers
From the sunflower to the yellow dahlia, we rely on flowers to set specific accents indoors. Bright yellow flowers may act as proxies of the sun indoors. But in the photographic studies of Michael Wissing, the rich and fascinating gold-leaf coloring is balanced out by a secret element of morbidity characteristic of still life. Explore our collection of flower art prints, with still lifes, vintage floral patterns, and flowers bursting with color.
