Aware of Our Eyes

Aware of Our Eyes

“No painter, dead or alive, has ever made us more aware of our eyes than Bridget Riley.” – Robert Melville

Bridge Riley’s first Op Art paintings were in black and white, using simple geometric shapes. Her works were said to induce physical sensations in viewers such as seasickness and falling. Riley began investigating color in 1967. She currently lives and works in London.
