Critical Review

Riley’s colour combinations intensify the sensation of rhythm and movement. The lines appear to advance and recede from the surface, like waves rolling on the Cornish beaches where Riley grew up escaping war torn London. Riley confesses the impact experiencing the abundant nature in Cornwall had on her work, which she believes is best captured and reflected in non-representational work. Green Dominance represents the beginning of Riley’s exploration in colour, for which she would become renowned.
