Red Red Blue is a signed screen print produced by Op artist Bridget Riley in 2010. In this print, Riley creates a composition of interlocking planes of colour. Riley uses blocks of red, pink and blue which stand out against a plain white backdrop. The abstract shapes that Riley arranges in the centre of the composition interact with one another which brings a dynamic quality to the print.
The print belongs to the Lozenges collection which Riley began working on in 1998. The works in this collection are all characterised by blocks of colour and curved shapes which evoke a sense of movement. Riley was very interested in nature and wanted to mimic movements such as rippling water, rolling waves and the blowing wind in her artworks. This interest can be traced back to Riley’s time living in Cornwall, where she moved during the war. Riley adored the ever-changing Cornish seas and skies and the way they stimulated her senses.
Red Red Blue and the other prints in the Lozenges collection are characterised by their bright and bold colours. The use of colour in this collection marks a development in Riley’s style. Riley rose to fame with her black and white paintings in the 1960s, however the artist soon became fascinated with colour and its impact on perception and emotions. Colour is an important element of the artist’s later works.
