The Stripe Paintings 1961–2012
Among the many pictorial devices Bridget Riley has deployed over her long career, the use of stripes has recurred the most consistently. Accompanying the exhibition Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961–2012 at Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin, this publication documents key paintings and studies demonstrating how Riley regularly returns to this seemingly simple idea and achieves surprising and complex results. At the center of the book stands a group of new horizontal stripe paintings, which take Riley’s ability to animate the entire visual field to new heights. This unique and focused publication includes full-color illustrations alongside important new texts by John Elderfield and Paul Moorhouse.
