From an art historical point of view, the colour Yellow has had different connotations over the centuries in different cultural circles. Yellow symbolizes envy, betrayal and cowardice. In the Middle Ages, yellow was used instead of gold on panel paintings and coats of arms. Yellow is also perceived as a positive and warm colour, because it associates terms such as sunshine and light. The colour Yellow as the focus of this exhibition turned out to be intuitive, as we noticed how often and how versatilely the artists use this colour. Whether lemon yellow, golden yellow, canary yellow, Indian yellow, sometimes more sand-coloured, sometimes greenish or a rich ochre - everything is there!
A yellow lemon and star fruit are of course striking yellow, the Expressionist painter Emil Nolde paints a yellow face that is programmatic, Mack refers to the colour theory with his work Colour Rotation, yellow in Tadeusz' masterful perspective plays a contrasting background, Lazaro's yellow refers to the magic of India, Demetz's Yellow drone monstrance adds an absurdity to this theme, Ikemura's faming yellow hair gets glorifying, the little Gardener in Macke's drawing is somewhat more meditative and Brohm's disused yellow motorboat lets the temperature rise.
Yellow triggers emotions - Yellow makes you happy! The question in life of what makes us happy, everyone has to answer for themselves, we are simply offering an incentive to just enjoy the colour Yellow, instead of always striving for the big picture. True to the motto, money does not make you happy - Yellow makes you happy, you are cordially invited to be infected!
