Critical Review

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.
