Bridget Riley - Montgomery County Public Schools

Bridget Riley Born April 25, 1931 - OP ART Optical Illusions Bridget Riley is one of Englands best known artists. Most of her early

work was in black and white. Her first exhibit was in 1962 and she became a huge success. Current 1964 Here the effect is of falling

water moving in waves. This is created by the lines moving closer and farther away from each other on the canvas. Move your head as you look at the painting and

see it ripple and change. Fall 1963 When the viewer looks at Optical Art the impression is given of movement, hidden images,

flashing and vibration, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping. Her work is known for its intensity and it's often

disorientating effect. The term 'Riley sensation' was coined to describe this dizzy effect of looking at Op Art paintings.

Her work is often on a very large scale, taking up entire walls. . Happy Birthday, Bridget Riley
