Critical Review

A purely visual sensation, Riley’s colour combinations, although appearing random, are the result of careful consideration. Using only four colours in repetition, Riley expands the canvas’s physical dimensions in Red Dominance. As the title suggests, red is the dominant colour in this composition with green, the colour lying opposite to red in colour space, creating a striking contrast. Such combinations of opposing colours maximally stimulate the viewer’s perception, causing the colours to shimmer along the edges where they meet. Red Dominance demonstrates the beginning of Riley’s experimentation with colour, for which the artist would become renowned.
