Elongated Triangles 1, one in a series of six, is exemplar of Bridget Riley’s forays into experimenting with composition, form and colour, and the disorientating effects such elements have on the eye. Composed of triangles arranged in a pattern evoking a backgammon board, Elongated Triangles 1, executed in 1971 and released in an edition of 75, explores the behaviour of interacting shapes and colours.
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.
