Critical Review

Riley was a master of endless reinvention as she progressively adapted her colour and formal choices throughout her career. Working exclusively in black and white until the late 1960s, upon introducing colours into her work, Riley discovered her scope of experimentation was now somewhat limitless. On her works featuring stripes Riley commented: “If I want to make colour a central issue, I had to give up the complexities of form with which I had been working. In the straight line I had one of the most fundamental forms”. Thus in these works Riley was permitted to delve deeper into exploring colour due to the simplistic compositional form repeated striped offered her.
