This catalogue accompanies Bridget Riley’s exhibition of new paintings at the Timothy Taylor Gallery in London (June – July 2006), her first commercial show in the UK since 2000. It is fully illustrated with large colour images of previously unseen paintings. These new ‘curvilinear’ works incorporate flowing forms that interlock and move with one another, a style that Riley has successfully developed in recent years. Included is an in-depth essay by Paul Moorhouse, curator of Riley’s hugely successful retrospective at Tate Britain in 2003.
Riley is one of the leading abstract painters of her generation. For the past four decades her career has been distinguished by a series of remarkable innovations. She first attracted critical attention with the dazzling black and white paintings of the early 1960s and has continued to develop new styles in her work. She remains a master at allowing us to question the way we see.
