►► Yellowism ends the era of self-seeking signatures
by Marcin Lodyga
You want to be a yellowist? You need to disappear. Dissolve yourself in yellowism, forget your name, your roots, your personality, erase your history, your ego. You don’t have signature now. Stay anonymous a bit like hackers. Barthes wanted the death of the author and now you want the same.There is only one meaning inside yellowism - yellow and you lose yourself within this ultimate meaning.You don’t have to sign your pieces of yellowism, because they are not yours, they belong to yellowism. The faceless, homogeneous mass of yellowism consists of “your” pieces too.
Work of art signed by artist (author) is worth more than exactly the same work but unsigned. The lack of signature decreases the financial value. Really? Well, that’s art. However, the lack of yellowist signature doesn’t decrease the value of piece of yellowism. In yellowism the value is permanent, as permanent as the ultimate meaning - yellow. Everything is flattened to yellow. Piece of yellowism number one or piece of yellowism number one million twenty one are unsigned, therefore they can be identified only by/through yellow.Every fucking thing, every beat of your heart, every thought in your mind means yellow. Your dream about being rich or famous means yellow too, so don’t sign pieces of yellowism, because you make yellow dirty.

Why Art Needs Yellowism (And You’re All Fucking Wrong)
On Sunday 7th October 2012 Vladimir Umanets walked into the Tate Modern in London and, via the medium of the graffiti bomber’s tag, claimed Rothko’s 1958 Seagram mural ‘Black on Maroon’ as ‘a potential piece of Yellowism’. Gallery visitor…

►► What is yellow?
by Marcin Lodyga
From a dictionary: yellow - adjective, noun [of] the colour of gold, the yolk of an egg.
A glass of water or any Van Gogh panting can be a definition of yellow too. Maybe their form and content define yellow even better than the description in a dictionary. Consider the form (and existence) of a glass of water as another definition of yellow.
Also, any, I say ANY definition in a dictionary can be a definition of yellow.
