Tertiary Chromatic Study
In this work I have reduced primary colours to basic geometric shapes following Kandinsky’s association: triangle=yellow, circle=blue and square= red. I then expanded this system to the first tertiary colours of the colour wheel.
These were executed for the Zeitgeist show. Reflecting on Zeitgeist, An idea would be to draw the geometric shapes associated with the colours of each European flag. These colours, which symbolise and encapsulate the beliefs and cultural identities of the countries they represent, would be reduced to an arrangement of basic geometric shapes. Since most flags display primary and secondary colours and since the latter are the result of combined primary colours, one can expect that this arrangement would present many repetitions and it would become visually difficult to identify which flag is which. Instead, the work might evoke more uniformity.
