Bridget Riley: Looking and Seeing, Doing and Making | Zentrum Paul Klee
The British artist Bridget Riley is one of the most prominent representatives of post-war abstract painting. With precision, playfulness and a vigorous spirit of enquiry, her work, which has received numerous distinctions, explores the dynamics of form, colour, space, and perception.
From 10 June to 28 August, the Zentrum Paul Klee is dedicating an exhibition to Bridget Riley, which focuses on the twenty-year period that followed a visit Riley made to Egypt in 1979, and which had a profound effect on the development of her colour work. Riley has selected paintings from her own collection to provide vital insights into how the working process unfolds through practice. In support of this, the exhibition includes rarely shown preliminary work, drawings and studies, which reveal Bridget Riley’s day-to-day life in her studio.
