Intervals II is a signed screen print, produced by Op artist Bridget Riley in 2019. In this print, Riley creates a composition of horizontal stripes. The artist 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 composition. The colourful stripes stand out against the composition’s plain white backdrop. The simplicity of the print reflects Riley’s artistic philosophy that complexity lurks beneath the surface of simplicity. The print encourages the viewer to take time to look at the work and think about it and what the composition of stripes might represent.
The print belongs to Riley’s Intervals collection which the artist produced late in her artistic career. The collection resonates strongly with Riley’s iconic stripe prints which the artist started working on in 1971. Riley often produces artworks which are centred on repetition and formulaic patterns. These simple designs focus the viewer’s attention on the colours employed in the prints, shifting focus from form to colour.
Riley is very interested in colour and the way it can elicit a particular emotional response. Other artists who explored the link between colour and emotion are Georges Seurat, who Riley herself has identified as having had a strong influence on the development of her own, unique, visual language, as well as Sonia Delaunay and Josef Albers.
