Transcript of Op Art
Bridget Riley, was born in 1931 in London. She began working in this style far before it was named as an official artistic movement. She notably represented her country in the Venice Biennale in 1968 and became the first British painter and female to win the Biennale’s International Prize in painting. Her art offers many examples of optical illusion. One beautiful piece is done in the traditional colours black and white—Movement in Squares (1961). In this piece, Riley shows that a simple geometric pattern of checkerboard squares when arranged in a compelling way can create motion and illusion. Bridget Riley Famous Work-Movement in Squares Movement in Squares fits into the art movement of Op Art because...
1. It creates an optical illusion.
2. It uses the traditional Op Art colours of Black and White.
3. It uses lines & patterns; a common concept of Op Art.
In conclusion, Op art is a very unique form of art movement, it offers something for people who love powerful use of concepts like geometry, line, colour, and pattern.
