By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel TOP 500 REVIEWER on November 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book is a fine, well-illustration retrospective and current update on one of the pioneers of Op Art and the eternal power of geometry and the sensuality of the curve. Whether circle arrangements, stripe patterns, or lacing of mechanically drawn curves, Riley's paintings are a feast for the eyes. But this is not simple geometric painting or familiar spatial illusions (as in the early years of Op). There is a complexity that is yet peaceful. The rich colors are joyful. Underappreciated in the United States, Riley's work can inspire a new look at the solid form.

4 AND A HALF STARS FOR BRIDGET RILEY.
Bridget Riley is very unusual artist and has produced work of breath taking beauty, away from Representative art and the more familiar trends in abstract art. Her thoughts on her own production, together with insight into to the history of art are very well conveyed in this publication that uses 3 principle authors.
Bridget Riley is a truly inspiring artist and the way the paintings and working drawings are directly supported by an intriguing text made this an unexpectedly rewarding and valuable book.What an amazing artist.
