On the first floor her triangle pieces, on first look, seem not to follow any strict pattern and some even have an odd curve to their side. As a whole, these curves link the triangles together, creating a sense of confusion of movement in the pieces. I overhead other people whispering similar thoughts, “Your brain is trying to interpret the shapes, but it feels fuzzy, you can’t keep staring at it.”
On the second and third floors, half of Riley’s circle pieces continue the black and white theme, where black discs form a diamond as they slowly fade to a light grey at its edges. These pieces create an interesting contrast with her final disc works as she introduces three new colours: purple, moss green and a reddish grey. These muted circles combine to make more complex structures that gives us something new to see.
All in all, the exhibition is a must see for fans of Bridget Riley and new gallery goers alike looking for something more than still lifes and portraits.
