Understanding Yellow I & II

Understanding Yellow I: lemon, cutting tools, wood. Understanding Yellow II: turmeric, cutting tools, wood.


Searching for an idea to create a work of art that stimulates different senses simultaneously (not only sight), I remembered the story about The Bauhaus school and Johannes Itten's color theory; to understand color is not only taking into account color's contrasting properties but also its emotional ones.
The story that was told to me is that Itten gave his students a lemon to eat before he allowed his students to paint with lemon yellow.
