Critical Review

This series of screen prints plays on three fundamental elements: the gird; the angles; and tonal movement. Each of these organisational elements varies slightly in each print as Riley carries out in-depth explorations into the effects of varying hues and compositions. The central subject of this series, therefore, is the result of these variations and their effects on the viewer.

In the late 1960s, Riley expanded her palette to incorporate a whole spectrum of colour. Hence, this series sits on the cusp of an important turning point for the artist and her career.
