Description

For more than 60 years, Bridget Riley has created dazzling and compelling abstract paintings which explore the fundamental nature of perception. She is one of the most distinguished and world-renowned artists working today. This comprehensive exhibition is the first museum survey of Riley’s work to be held in the UK for 16 years and the first of its kind in Scotland. It features early paintings and drawings, iconic black-and-white works of the 1960s, Riley’s expansive explorations into colour, wall paintings and recent works, as well as studies that reveal Riley’s working methods.
