Critical Review

Riley has previously suggested these horizontally-striped works should be read from left to right in order to fully appreciate the variations in tone between warmer and cooler hues. Each colour is selected in response to the colour it superposes: “I want to create a colour-form, not coloured forms”, Riley states. By varying the tones of the colours selected for Firebird, a rainbow effect emerges and the colours appear to blend and bleed into each other.
