Critical Review

The stability of Riley’s solid, horizontal lines are integral to the study of colour, which is inherently unstable, since the perception of colour is variable on external factors such as light and surrounding colours. The eye, when looking at one line of colour, perceives a hint of the next colour, creating a sense of movement and vibration. Here, rather than selecting just two colours, Riley has created a rainbow effect of three pastel hues, which darken in tone at alternating ends. Conceived from countless decisions regarding structure, scale, colour and composition, Riley’s works are mathematically precise and Elongated Triangles 4 is no exception.
