Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961-2014

 

Popped in to see this small retrospective of Riley's Stripe paintings on a grey June London day. It lifted me as it was a real pop of colour compared to the greyness of London outside. 


The combination of vivid colours and different width of stripes in the paintings produced some really strange optical effects on my eyes.


There is a really nice small black and white horizontal piece from the 1960s (below).


Must say I preferred the vertical striped pieces to the horizontal ones. The Zwirner Gallery is a nice space also.
