Critical Review

The print is part of the Arcadia collection which is composed of a series of prints, all of which follow a similar colour scheme and pattern of shapes. The elegant arrangement of geometric shapes in the Arcadia collection resonates with Riley’s other works, notably the Lozenges collection. Riley mimics natural movements, such as rippling water, rolling waves and blowing winds in her artworks, and her interest in movement shines through in the Arcadia collection.

The colour palette employed in Arcadia 3 resonates with Cézanne's masterpiece, Les Grandes Baigneuses. Other artistic influences that mark Riley’s own visual style are Georges Seurat and Henri Matisse. Traces of Italian Futurism and Pointillism are also apparent in the artist’s works.
