Untitled (Rose) is a signed screen print in colours produced by Op artist Bridget Riley in 1978. The print shows a composition of coloured waved lines. Light pink, blue, orange and yellow dominate the composition and the intricate pattern of coloured lines captures the essence of Riley’s artistic style which is characterised by simplicity and an interest in geometric shapes and patterns. The use of waved lines in this composition creates a sense of movement, making this print seem like an optical illusion.
The print belongs to the Waves collection which Riley worked on in the 1970s and 1980s. The collection is composed of artworks which all depict patterns of waved lines which evoke a sense of undulating movement. Riley is also known for her Stripes collection in which she produces works based on vertical and horizontal lines rendered in bright colours. Unlike the Stripes collection, in the Waves collection, the colours Riley employs are less pure. The artist opts for a selection of mixed hues instead of block colours in order to experiment with tone and how this affects perception.
The term Op Art, short for ‘optical art’ can be used to describe this print. The term refers to the way in which certain patterns of shapes and colours can produce the sensation of movement. This collection also showcases Riley’s interest in colour which was influenced by renowned artists such as Georges Seurat and Henri Matisse.
