Critical Review

In this rendition, horizontal lines of blue and a contrasting red, placed at alternate angles, stimulate the viewer’s eyes, creating a dizzying effect. Intent on exploring the divine aspects of art, achieved by sequencing patterns, Riley’s print is meticulously calculated. Even the colour combinations are carefully thought through. Each tone is created in response to the colour it superposes: “I want to create a colour-form, not coloured forms”, Riley states.
