Critical Review

This print was made near the beginning of Riley’s artistic career and was created before the artist had achieved international acclaim. Riley’s early works are characterised by the use of black and white and geometric shapes which are arranged to produce visually stimulating patterns.

Riley has been categorised as an Op artist due to the way in which she explored the interplay of shape, line and light in her works. Op art, short for ‘optical art’, refers to the way in which artists use shapes, colours and patterns to produce images that seem to be moving. Riley was intrigued by the way in which certain arrangements of shapes and colours could evoke a sense of movement, and this fascination marks many of the artist’s works.
