Transcript of Bridget Riley
Bridget Riley is a British Op artist who was born in London and grew up in southern England
she trained at the Royal College of Art in London, but became dissatisfied with her training
she left school because of this dissatisfaction, and to look after her father, who had been in a serious car accident
a trip to France and Italy, where she saw the artwork of Impressionists and Futurists inspired her
this artwork gave her the idea to create artwork that explored optical effects and movement
she quickly became the best known of the Op artists
Bridget Riley is inspired by experiences and different states of mind
Riley takes a unit, such as a shape, line or space, and transforms it in some way
she used black and white for many years to express the tension in her life; she later used color to express calmer feelings
works in an all-white studio to clearly see the variations in her values
her work became highly commercialized in the 1960's, which she protested; she said she was not trying to paint optical effects but express "a kind of tension"
