 movement, Riley covers large canvases with interlocking bands, undulating curves, scattered discs, or repeated squares or triangles. Because of their sequential arrangement and the relationship of their color values, these patterns create optical sensations of rhythmically vibrating surfaces. She is responsible for the interior decoration of the Royal Liverpool Hospital, where her color choices (blue, yellow, pink, and white) were intended to relax patients. Riley is represented in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City.
