“ Red has been praised for its nobility of the color of life. But the true color of life is not red. Red is the color of violence, or of life broken open, edited, and published.”
-Alice Meynell, The Color of Life, 1896
I don’t think there are any “bad” colors – just different emotions and connotations that we associate with them, just like we do with anything else. Red it interesting that way- it’s vibrant and bold – and yet can signal danger, and heat. Like anything, it’s our own perception that we impose on it.
