Elapse (1982), by British Op-Artist Bridget Riley, was released as an edition of 260 signed screen prints. Exemplifying Riley’s pioneering optical trickery, wavy lines in dissolving pastel hues create an illusion of 3-dimensional relief.
Bridget Riley credits her fervent interest in colour to the Italian Futurists and French masters, such as Henri Matisse and Georges Seurat. Pointillism and Divisionism underpin Riley’s practice, both Modern art movements relying on the capacity of the eye to blend colours placed side by side, achieving a fuller range of tones.
Throughout her career, Riley’s artistic practice has developed somewhat cautiously. Incorporating different shapes—including Waves—and colours in stages Riley continuously expands the bounds of creativity and complexity in her work.
