Bridget Riley was born in London in 1931 and studied art at Goldsmiths’ College and the Royal College of Art from 1949-1955. She began painting figure subjects in a semi-impressionist manner but changed to pointillism around 1958, mainly producing landscapes. In 1960 she evolved a style in which she explored the dynamic potentialities of optical phenomena, today known as Op Art.
Influenced by artists including Georges Seurat and Victor Vasarely, Riley began to produce works in black and white geometric shapes that created sensations of movement and color. Their disarming nature reflected the preoccupations of the era, namely the search for new ways to engage the viewer with art, and the state of the individual amidst an age of hallucinogenic drugs and the atomic bomb. Riley began incorporating color into her artwork in 1966, by which time she had already gained widespread recognition.
Riley won the International Painting Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1968. Her works are currently held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York; the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.; the Tate Gallery in London; and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
