The British artist Bridget Riley (1931) is known for her colourful canvasses and optical illusions. She is one of the most famous artists of her generation.
Gemeentemuseum The Hague has a special relationship with Riley and presents an overview of her work this Summer, with over fifty paintings and preliminary studies with a focus on ‘the curve’, the wave that is recurrent throughout her career.
Riley inverts the relationship between the visitor and the canvas: an optical game, created by the dynamic compositions, is changed as soon as the visitor moves.
