Bridget Riley: The Art of Perception

Bridget Riley: The Art of Perception

Discover the origins and evolution of Bridget Riley's spectacular practice with Dr Cliff Lauson, Senior Curator at the Hayward Gallery, London.

Lauson charts Riley's oeuvre from her accomplished early sketches rendering the figure, to the painterly lessons she learned from the works of pointillist Georges Seurat, to her seismic break with representation into dazzling abstraction. Lauson also gives insight into the artist's working methods, exploring how Riley hones the patterns of her compositions to give precise optical effect, for ultimately 'perception itself is the medium that she's working through'.
