In a continuum of luminance from complete darkness to pure white, the first logical color frequencies are red and orange hues.

The logical answer to the question After white black and gray, what would be the next logical color? would presumably be a unanimous--RED. Red has a widerange of cultural associations, and what it may connote, e.g. life and death (when mixed with black), love and affection (pink) when mixed with white, and myriad other meanings. But regardless of those metaphors, black, white and red have become a way of removing decisions about color and concentrating on form.

Vectorized object using photographs of an actual object, in this case a cast iron shoe-shine stand, painted red. The stand is the readymade, and the print is a derivation as a visual pun as the stand is red in color.

BWR in Car Colors


In aerial views of parking lots one typically sees car colors that are some shade of black, shades of gray, silvers, and various shades of red. Shades of blue still exist but are less common. The gamut of car paint colors in the 1960s and 1970s was somewhat more varied, with bright yellows, greens and purples, but the range was still primarily the black, white and red shades.
