For the artist too, such a comprehensive retrospective exhibition, also offers a chance to gain an insight into her own work. In this, the first of two short videos, Riley expresses her delight at seeing how audiences react to, and experience, her work, and how that relates to her own dialogue with her painting.
And in this second short clip, Riley explains how, when creating new pieces, she endeavours to explore the different ways in which her work will be viewed.
