This vibrant color is, in painting, considered part of the "warm" spectrum of the color range, and has the effect of coming forward in a visual work as compared to other colors like blue or green, which tend to recede into the background. Its vibrancy attracts the viewers eye, making it a great color to use in advertising for brands or images that want to strongly be associated with a strong energy.

The color tends to stand out to humans because shades of red are often found in fruit, which was, some time ago, rare to find in the mostly green and brown forest environments of our evolution.

Associated with passion, love, anger, danger ~ general excitation of the senses. It is associated with these emotions because it is the color of blood and blood flow increases to our muscles during exercise or fighting (anger, danger), and our capillaries under thin skin when we are aroused by something in the environment, or indeed, within our own mind (sex, love, passion). Lipstick and blush (also known as rouge, "red" in French) are shades of red because they mimic and enhance the natural florid look of sexual excitation, when there is increased blood flow to the lips and cheeks.

During estrous in many primates, including Baboons and our close relatives, Bonobos, (but thankfully no longer in our own species due to its rather gaudy appearance), the female genital region swells enormously and is bright red, signaling to males that she is near ovulation and ready for mating. For more about Humans and our distinct lack of estrous swellings, see concealed ovulation.
