Bridget Riley is perhaps one of the best-known artists who thrives on manipulating our ‘ways of seeing’.

Constantly drawn to exploring how our eyes perceive images, the oils, prints and preparatory colour studies on display demonstrate the artist’s unwavering obsession with colour, structure and perception. These themes have dominated her work and were hugely influential components in shaping her expansive career from the 1960s to the present day.

This exhibition proudly displays work from every decade of Riley’s career, including the iconic chequered Movement in Squares (1961), the colourfully lined Cherry Autumn (1983) and the diagonally striped Nataraja (1993). Each piece gives a sense of how the artist’s career progressed and developed over the years, from curved, striped, colourful and black and white works – Nataraja particularly demonstrates her move into diagonal composition.

Dive into the historical context and innovative methods the artist used, making her a leader in the field of op-art.
