Cyan vs. Magenta vs. Yellow

I've been thinking a lot about the use of color in society. So I started brainstorming about how I could display a variety of color primaries and systems. This is an example of subtractive color, for example, common household printers right now use cyan, magenta, and yellow inks to make a limited range of colors. I chose to leave black ink out of this for a couple of reasons.

I'd like to expand on the concept of personifying color by doing a few pieces based on additive color(lights), munsell's color system (principle hues red, yellow, green, blue, purple), opponent process (white vs black, red vs green, yellow vs blue), and something based on textiles(bleach). I'll see how far I get!
