Bridget Riley // Hayward Gallery

We swapped the studio for the Southbank to see the highly anticipated Bridget Riley exhibition at the Hayward Gallery.

Bridget Riley

Hayward Gallery

23rd Oct – 26th Jan

 

Spread over two floors of the Hayward Gallery at the Southbank Centre the exhibition brings together paintings drawings and sketches spanning the artists working life from 1947 to present day. Each room is divided by themes that occur in the artists work such as curves, stripes and monochromatic pieces. You can see throughout the rooms how the artist has returned to previous inspirations in her newer works.

 

 

 

Our favourite room was filled with studies and preliminary sketches that allowed the artist to explore various possibilities and patterns before painting the large scale works. There was also work displayed from the artists time spent at art school depicting studies of the human form and patterns with landscapes.

There’s still a chance to catch this inspiring exhibition which questions how we perceive colour and form through the artists visual language. Bridget Riley runs at the Hayward Gallery until 26th of January.

Get some geometry in your life…

If you can’t yet buy your own Bridget Riley then why not treat yourself to some amazing abstract pieces from our gallery.
