Texts by John Elderfield, Paul Moorhouse, and Robert Kudielka
Filled with Bridget Riley’s mesmerizing stripe paintings, this catalogue conveys the artist’s unique development in using stripes to animate the entire visual field. Published in conjunction with the Bridget Riley: The Stripe Paintings 1961–2012 exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, key paintings and studies of Riley’s stripe works are collected for the first time. This well-illustrated title demonstrates how Riley reguarly returned to this seemingly simple pictorial device to achieve complex, suprising results. The focused publication includes full-color illustrations alongside important texts by John Elderfield and Paul Moorhouse – in both English and German – which situate these exhilarating works within the artist’s oeuvre and a broader art historical context.
