Critical Review

Exploring the effects of contrasting warm and cold greys, Riley, much like in her other works, manipulates shape and colour to generate complex visual sensations in the spectator. On these works the Tate Gallery wrote: “they involve certain juxtapositions and confrontations where the elements or their activities neutralise one another, cancel one another out. The central subject of the prints is the result of this neutralisation or cancellation”. Thus, the focus of this series was the result of tonal variations and their effects on the viewer, enabling an exploration into the physiological and psychological responses of the eyes.
