BRIDGET RILEY: PAINTINGS AND WORKS ON PAPER, 1963-2005

Blaze 3, 1963 | Acrylic on board | 37 1/4” x 37

"This exhibition encompasses forty years of uncompromising and remarkable innovation, exploring Bridget Riley’s characteristic and distinctive optically vibrant work. Her last exhibition in North America was at the Dia Center, New York, in 2000.

Riley’s work is celebrated for its ability to engage the viewer’s sensations and perceptions, producing visual experiences that are complex and challenging, subtle and arresting.

Her paintings employ a simple vocabulary of colors and abstract shapes to generate sensations of movement, light and space. This exhibition traces the development of Riley’s work from the early 1960s to the present day.

Ms. Riley will be at Cranbrook on Friday evening, September 23, 2005.

Ms. Riley will present a rare public lecture on Saturday, September 24 at 4:00 p.m."

The exhibit will be shown September 3, 2005 through October 30, 2005.
