Bridget Riley - Paintings From The 1960s To The Present
|Author||K. Maeda ; M. Hayashi ; Y. Kato|
|Publisher||Torch Press / Fumi Ishino|
The exhibition catalogue for an eponymous exhibition at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Japan, this volume celebrates the sustained brilliance of Bridget Riley’s art. A renowned proponent of Op art, the British artist is known to use a variety of geometric forms that produce sensations of movement or colour for the viewer, at once disorienting or even psychedelic. Spanning her career, the exhibition and publication highlight more than 30 paintings, including key examples of her famous black-and-white works of the 1960s, the stripe paintings of the 1970s, and curve paintings from the 1990s, as well as her more recent wall paintings.
