Exhibition: Bridget Riley @ Berggruen SF

 Chosen for  THERESPONSIVEI.COM  by Eva Zanardi  

BRIDGET RILEY

THE INTERACTIVE CHARACTER OF COLOR, 1970-2014

APRIL 27 – JUNE 30, 2016

John Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Bridget Riley, the artist’s first exhibition in San Francisco. Bridget Riley: The Interactive Character of Color, 1970-2014 will feature a contemporary and historical selection of Riley’s seminal color paintings, which shed light on her experimentation with color, form, light, and tone. Through her careful geometric studies and close pairings of color and forms, Riley explores the precarious nature of balance, looking at the way in which the slightest compositional shift can dramatically transform the tone and nature of a work, and how the pairing of disparate colors can alter the viewer’s perception of the true nature of the color itself. This exhibition will explore her various uses of color to address her belief that “everything that would constitute a viable art form had to be found, discovered, re-invented or recreated.”
