Fragment 7 is a 1965 screen print by Bridget Riley, released in a signed edition of 75. Black dots on a white ground create the optical illusion that the print disappears into a concave, horizontal fold—Riley radically and abstractly reinvents the linear perspective of traditional landscape paintings.
In her early works, including the Fragment series, Riley endeavoured to recreate the wonder of seeing, without resorting to using representational imagery. Riley’s geometric patterns enable an exploration into the physiological and psychological responses of the eye.
Surprising and confounding the art world with her vivid paintings for seventy years, since Riley sprang to fame in the 60s, the artist has continued to explore the effects of form, shape and colour on the viewer.
