Bridget Riley


Bridget Riley is a British artist known for her singular Op Art paintings. Melding clean lines, colour arrangements, and geometric precision she creates optically compelling visual effects on a two-dimensional surface. Although abstract, her practice is closely linked with nature, which she understands to be "the dynamism of visual forces—an event rather than an appearance." Riley incorporates new shapes and designs into her later work, and reflects the influence of Egyptian hieroglyphs in pieces that play with opposing colours.
