Bringing together essays by and interviews with the leading abstract artist Bridget Riley, this volume represents her passionate and articulate engagement with color, perception and art history. Divided into three sections, the writings reveal Riley’s relationship to different topics over time, including the term ‘abstract’, the influence of Georges Seurat and Paul Cézanne, the role of color and painting throughout art history, the importance of perception, and much more. The book includes interviews with preeminent art historians such as David Sylvester, Mel Gooding, and Lynne Cooke, as well as in-depth studies of other artists: Piet Mondrian, Bruce Nauman, and Georges Seurat.
