Critical Review

Made in 2015, this print was produced once Riley had gained the status of a highly influential, critically acclaimed artist. Riley rose to fame in the 1960s following an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965 which included some of her remarkable black and white paintings. Riley’s early work is characterised by her black and white palette and the way in which the artist experimented with light, shape and colour to evoke a sense of movement in her artworks.

While Riley’s early works tend to be in black and white, by the late 1960s the artist started experimenting with colour. Riley became fascinated with the way in which colour could influence perception as well as one’s emotional response to an image. Riley’s later works are marked by the use of bright colours and an experimentation with colour, tones and hues.
