Bridget Riley

It has been a while since I last saw a Bridget Riley in the flesh.  The exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion spanned the last 50 years of her career, focusing on her curve paintings.

Her earlier work was ground-breaking and painstakingly executed, quiet and contemplative, with plans displayed to show Riley’s process and precision.  Her more recent work is freer and joyful, with bold use of colour.  Less obviously her signature, but exciting none the less.
