Amongst the many pictorial devices Bridget Riley has deployed over her long career the use of stripes has been recurring consistently.
Accompanying the Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961–2012 exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin, 8 June – 18 July 2013, 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 centre of the publication 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 colour illustrations alongside important new texts by John Elderfield and Paul Moorhouse.
Published by Ridinghouse in association with Holzwarth Publications and Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin.
