Bridget Riley

Bridget Riley lives and works in London, Cornwall, and France, and is well known for her artworks with geometric abstractions and optical art, Op Art. We love the way she cleverly plays with colour and varied gradients to mimic movement and vibration within the artwork.

Of her work, she said: “The eye can travel over the surface in a way parallel to the way it moves over nature. It should feel caressed and soothed, experience frictions and ruptures, glide and drift. One moment, there will be nothing to look at and the next second the canvas seems to refill, to be crowded with visual events.” 

Riley has participated in solo and group exhibitions across Europe, the United States of America, and Asia. She has earned various awards over her career, and was named a CBE in 1974. Her artworks are currently held in numerous collections worldwide, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Tate Gallery in London, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
