"For me, drawing is an enquiry, a way of finding out—the first thing that I discover is that I do not know. This is alarming even to the point of momentary panic. Only experience reassures me that this encounter with my own ignorance—with the unknown—is my chosen and particular task, and provided that I can make the required effort the rewards may teach the unimaginable. It is as though there is an eye at the end of my pencil, which tries, independently of my personal general-purpose eye, to penetrate a kind of obscuring veil or thickness. To break down this thickness, this deadening opacity, to elicit some particle of clarity or insight, is what I want to do."
Bridget Riley, excerpted from Bridget Riley: Flashback.

Bridget Riley: The Eye's MindBridget Riley: The Eye's Mind

Collected Writings, 1965–2019

Published by The Bridget Riley Art Foundation.
Edited by Robert Kudielka.

Now updated, a classic text of meditations on painting and perception from op-art pioneer Bridget Riley

This volume, now fully revised and updated for the third time, reveals the mind behind a remarkable artistic achievement, drawing together the most important texts and interviews of the last 50 years.
Riley (born 1931), one of the leading abstract painters of her generation, holds a unique position in contemporary art. She has developed and extended the range of her interests ever since her first success in the 1960s, creating a body of work which is both consistent and highly varied.
The Eye's Mind includes her essays on Cézanne, Seurat, Mondrian and Nauman, and interviews with David Sylvester, Robert Kudielka and Mel Gooding, among others. Riley's writings show a passionate engagement with her subjects and a great insight paired with a freshness of approach and an exceptional clarity of expression. Quite apart from providing a key to understanding her own work, this book is a fascinating document reflecting the issues and problems facing an artist in the 21st century.

Bridget Riley: Dialogues on ArtBridget Riley: Dialogues on Art

Published by The Bridget Riley Art Foundation.
Edited by Robert Kudielka. Introduction by Richard Shone. Conversations by Neil MacGregor, E.H. Gombrich, Michael Craig-Martin, Andrew Graham Dixon, Bryan Robertson.

Op art pioneer Bridget Riley in conversation with some of the world's leading art historians and artists, from Ernst Gombrich to Michael Craig-Martin

On the occasion of a major exhibition of Bridget Riley's (born 1931) work at the Hayward Gallery, London, in 1992, BBC Radio broadcast an illuminating series of five dialogues, each one between Riley and a well-known personality from the art world. These talks are collected in this volume, expertly edited by the art historian Robert Kudielka.
With Neil MacGregor, art historian and former director of the British Museum, Bridget Riley discusses the art of the past in relation to the present; with the celebrated art historian and theorist Ernst Gombrich she explores the perception of color in painting; with the artist Michael Craig-Martin, she addresses the theory and practice of abstraction; and with the critics Bryan Robertson and Andrew Graham-Dixon she talks about the events and travels that have shaped her life as an artist.
The publication of this newly revised edition coincides with Bridget Riley's 2019–20 retrospective exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland and the Hayward Gallery, London.

For her 2017 exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler in Paris, Bridget Riley (born 1931) installed eight canvases and two wall works—all part of her Disc Paintings series (2016–2017), in which colored discs are arranged in a diagonal grid, their palette—off-green, off-violet and off-orange—inspired by Seurat.

About Bridget Riley: Selected Writings, 1999-2016About Bridget Riley: Selected Writings, 1999-2016

Published by Ridinghouse.
Edited by Doro Globus.

The present volume includes the vast majority of significant essays on Bridget Riley written since 1999. This was a particularly fruitful period in the reception of her work, as the discourse broadened and her reputation as one of the most important painters of her generation solidified.
The essays range from biographical and career overviews to detailed analysis of specific aspects or themes that occur throughout Riley’s career. The selection reflects a rich body of work, which sustains the interest of important authors, as evidenced by multiple pieces by Éric de Chassey, Lynne Cooke, Robert Kudielka, Paul Moorhouse and Richard Shiff. Together, this volume of essays tells the story of an artist whose art has continuously evolved over nearly six decades.
Most of the critical texts have been written in close consultation with the artist, the result of long conversations, sudio visits and archive access. Largely commissioned on the occasion of particular exhibitions, these essays track and trace Riley’s focus and influences at different moments in time. Each essay builds upon the next, with more recent authors clearly responding and referencing earlier discourse. The result is a collection of great breadth and cohesion.
An important resource, About Bridget Riley represents a monumental body of research and analysis by some of the most important art historians of today. It also offers the opportunity for the reader and the viewer to approach Riley from a plethora of perspectives to form their own view, much reflecting Riley’s own particular approach to art history. As John Elderfield puts it: ‘Effectively, Riley makes a pact with the viewer, through the medium of the painting, that they will collaborate in eliciting from a particular painting a particular sort of mobile visual array. And, when the viewer stops looking at the painting, it will therefore be as if leaving something that continues to go on.’

This volume documents a focused group of paintings from 2014–15 by British artist Bridget Riley (born 1931). After decades of exploring the subtle effects of color, Riley returns to stark, black-and-white, geometrically derived forms--variations on the trademark style she developed in the early 1960s.

Bridget Riley: Paintings, 1963-2015Bridget Riley: Paintings, 1963-2015

Published by Ridinghouse.

Spanning over 50 years of Bridget Riley’s career, this volume explores the dialogue between black-and-white and colour in the artist’s work.
Riley gained critical attention internationally for her black-and-white paintings during the mid-1960s, using elementary shapes to engage the eye by creating flux and rhythm within the pictorial field. Throughout the succeeding decades, Riley has continued her investigation into perception through related bodies of work in rich colour.
This volume accompanies a focused display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (15 April 2016 – 16 April 2017), which tracks Riley’s work up to the recent re-introduction of a palette of black and white. It includes essays by Éric de Chassey and Frances Spalding as well as a historic interview with the artist by Robert Kudielka, which together contextualise Riley’s early developments and demonstrate how her latest paintings progress directly out of a rigorous engagement with colour.

Bridget Riley: Venice And BeyondBridget Riley: Venice And Beyond

Published by Ridinghouse.

Examining a breakthrough moment in Bridget Riley’s career, this volume illustrates the importance of colour to the artist’s investigation of visual contrast and perception.
During the early 1960s, Riley’s black-and-white work employed elementary shapes to convey movement and light. Having tested this limited set of means, the artist incorporated colour into her paintings in 1967.
This volume accompanies an exhibition at Graves Gallery, Sheffield (18 February–25 June 2016) that chronicles the period of change which took place before, during and after Riley’s representation of Great Britain at the 34th Venice Biennale. Using Rise 1 (1968) as a starting point, the carefully selected group of paintings and works on paper from 1967–85 situate this important painting within its context.
Alongside over 30 full-colour illustrations, an essay by Paul Moorhouse explores how the adoption of colour informs developments throughout Riley’s ensuing career.

Bridget Riley: The Curve Paintings 1961-2014Bridget Riley: The Curve Paintings 1961-2014

Published by Ridinghouse.
Text by Robert Kudielka.

Marking the first major survey of Bridget Riley’s use of the curve, this volume explores how the artist has often returned to this pictorial device over a 50-year time span.
Coinciding with the artist’s exhibition at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea (13 June–6 September 2015), the publication features studies and paintings from throughout Riley’s career; beginning with black-and-white works from the 1960s up to the recent wall painting Rajasthan (2012), which combines curvilinear shapes with a vibrant colour palette.
Animating the entire visual field, Riley’s distinctive abstract language is shaped by her study of Paul Cézanne and Georges Seurat’s treatment of pictorial space. Accompanied by colour illustrations of over 30 works in the exhibition, a new interview with the artist by Paul Moorhouse offers an in-depth exploration of Riley’s influences and developments.

Bridget Riley: Studies, 1984-95Bridget Riley: Studies, 1984-95

Published by Ridinghouse.

Tracking a transitional period of Bridget Riley’s career, the works on paper in this volume move from the vertical stripe to increasingly complex diagonal compositions.
During the mid-1980s, Riley introduced a new pictorial device – the rhomboid – to the then predominantly vertical stripes, developing her exploration of interplaying tones of green, yellow and orange.
Riley constructs new visual relationships between divergent colours and forms within these works, creating what the artist terms a ‘harmony of contrasts’ that animates the entire visual field.
Illustrated in full colour, the works are accompanied by a historic interview with the artist by Robert Kudielka and a text by Natalia Naish and Alexandra Tommasini, which situate these studies with major paintings during this period.

Eight never-before-seen gouache studies are at the centre of this volume, illustrating Bridget Riley’s dynamic approach to colour.
This volume documents a group of gouache studies by Bridget Riley from 1969 to 1972 that reflects a major reconfiguration of Riley’s style.

Bridget Riley: Paintings And Gouaches 1979-80 & 2011: At Karsten Schubert, London

Published by Ridinghouse.

Placing new paintings by Bridget Riley in relation to her early gouaches, this publication highlights the important new directions taken by the famous British artist.
Accompanying an exhibition of the same name at Karsten Schubert, London, this catalogue features three new paintings which bring Riley's exploration of the circle from the wall to the canvas, and from black and white to colour.
Through the layering of circles of yellow and orange in her exploration of interplaying colours, Riley asks the eye to continuously adjust as the shapes grow and compress, and dance across the canvas.
Full-colour illustrations are accompanied by a conversation between Bridget Riley and Robert Kudielka from 1978, in which the artist discusses her move away from the blacks, greys and whites of her 1960s works and towards the use of the curve ‘as a rhythmic vehicle for colour’.

Bridget Riley: FlashbackBridget Riley: Flashback

Published by Hayward Gallery Publishing.
Text by Michael Bracewell, Bridget Riley, Robert Kudielka.

Bridget Riley is that rare instance of an artist whose work breaks free of art history and merges with the broader cultural imagination, yet preserves for itself a rigorous, focused dialogue with painting's most basic properties: the interaction of form and color. Produced in close collaboration with the artist, Flashback tracks Bridget Riley's career from its sensational beginnings in the early 1960s, at the helm of Op art, to the ambitious and powerful paintings and works on paper of recent years. Alongside a wealth of reproductions of works from 1961 to 2007, it also features an illustrated chronology and list of works in U.K. public collections, an essay by Michael Bracewell and a wonderful meditation by Riley, titled “Work,” in which she looks back on the curve of her art across the decades. “You cannot deal with thought directly outside practice as a painter,” she writes: “‘doing' is essential in order to find out what form your thought takes.” Flashback reveals Riley's achievement in all its energetic glory, surveyable in one concise volume.

Bridget Riley: Circles Colour Structure - Studies 1970/71Bridget Riley: Circles Colour Structure - Studies 1970/71

Published by Ridinghouse.
Edited by Rosalind Horne, Text by Robert Kudielka.

Bringing together over 20 gouache studies by Bridget Riley, this volume reveal elements of the celeberated artist's process.
Accompanying an exhibition of Riley's work at Karsten Schubert, London, the studies explore the results of setting circles of colours – such as turquoise, cerise and ochre – at different distances.
The works are accompanied by an interview with the artist by Robert Kudielka from 1972, just following the creation of these works. In the discussion, Riley touches upon the role of her studies and the effects of her colour choices on light and movement in the picture plane.

Bridget Riley: New Paintings and GouachesBridget Riley: New Paintings and Gouaches

Published by Ridinghouse.
Text by Paul Moorhouse.

Focusing on Bridget Riley's newest body of works, this volume reflects the artist's exploration of curves to create paintings of great energy and movement. Accompanying an exhibition of new 'curvilinear’ works at Timothy Taylor Gallery, London (June–July 2006), these paintings incorporate complex layers of flowing forms that interlock and move with one another.
Using a patch of colour that is similar to a brushmark, Riley’s forms interrupt and threaten to break out from the picture plane, overhanging the frame to jostle and animate the visual field. Refining and developing this form in recent paintings, the artist's work offers an incredible melding of form and colour. Alongside over 20 full-colour illustrations, an in-depth essay by Paul Moorhouse examines the changes within Riley’s work throughout her multi-decade career.

Bridget RileyBridget Riley

Published by Dia Art Foundation.
Essays by Lynne Cooke, John Elderfield. Foreword by Michael Govan.

This book documents Bridget Riley's current exhibition at New York's Dia Center for the Arts, Reconnaissance, which brings together seminal paintings from the early 1960s, landmark works esteemed via word-of-mouth but not often seen. These works are shown together with others from the later 60s and 70s to chart the early career of this highly influential but--especially in the US--all-too-little-known artist. Riley's dynamically abstract paintings from the 1960s and 1970s long ago secured her a permanent place in the history of postwar art. Despite this widespread acclaim, Riley's work has been exhibited in the US only on a few occasions. In Reconnaissance, the artist's first solo exhibition to originate in the US in decades, the public will be able to examine a selection from Riley's compelling body of early work. Additionally, Riley has executed a wall drawing for Dia's galleries, which is documented here.
