Colour, Stripes, Planes and Curves
An essential publication for followers of the influential painter Bridget Riley, this exhibition catalog traces the artist’s progress through the agency of stripes, planes and curves through her paintings and studies from the past 30 years. Riley’s early color paintings were strongly influenced by the discoveries of Seurat and the Impressionists. Study of Cézanne, in particular his practice of drawing with color and a desire to dig deeper into pictorial space, led to the introduction of planes in grids formed by the junction of intersecting verticals and diagonals – and of colors and contrasts. Includes an interview with the artist conducted by the Director of Kettle’s Yard, Michael Harrison.
