Early Light (1987), by British Op-Artist Bridget Riley, was released in a signed edition of 75 vibrant screen prints. Early Light's palette is inspired by the bright, Cornish summers of Riley’s adolescence, evoking dazzling sunshine as the variably sized ‘zigs’ or rhomboids draw the eye flittingly across it.
Early Light demonstrates Riley’s continuing interest in capturing the brilliance of nature through abstraction and colour, which combine in patterns that fizz and dance across the two-dimensional canvas. Despite being abstract, Riley’s work is grounded in her phenomenological experience of the natural world, especially her adolescence spent in Cornwall, as an escape from war-torn London. Riley confesses that the ever-changing Cornish seas and skies stimulated her vision, the sensations of which she seeks to recreate in her painting.
