Printed in an edition of 120, Bridget Riley’s Intervals (2019) is one of her more static compositions, using straight horizontal lines. The prints are signed and come in an edition size of 120. In these prints Riley arranges five bands of horizontal stripes on top of one another, spanning the composition vertically. Riley renders the stripes in cool colours, with purple, blue and green dominating the compositions.
Riley is a renowned English painter whose work is closely associated with the term ‘Op Art’. Short for ‘optical art’, Op Art is a style of visual art that creates optical illusions through careful compositions of shape, light and colour. Op artworks are abstract and tend to produce illusions of movement.
Riley was born in London and studied art at Goldsmiths' College (1949–52), and later at the Royal College of Art (1952–55). As Riley was working as an art teacher, she was able to develop her personal style and experiment with Op Art techniques. The prints in the intervals collection are much simpler than many of Riley’s Op Art pieces and capture the artist’s philosophy that complexity lurks beneath the surface of simplicity, if only we take the time to notice.
