BRIDGET RILEY: VENICE AND BEYOND. Museums Sheffield, 2016. Published in association with Ridinghouse, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 56 pp. 30 x 25 cm. ISBN 9781909932203 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: Examining a breakthrough moment in Bridget Riley's career, the latest volume in the extensive library of focused publications on the artist's oeuvre illustrates the importance of color in her investigations of visual contrast and perception. During the early 1960s, Riley's black-and-white work employed elementary shapes to convey movement and light. Having tested this limited set of means, in 1967 Riley began incorporating color into her paintings. The slender softcover catalog accompanying the eponymous exhibition at Graves Gallery chronicles the period of change that took place before, during and after Riley's exhibition at the 34th Venice Biennale. Using Rise 1 (1968) as the starting point, the carefully selected group of paintings and works on paper from 1967 to 1985 situate this important painting within its context. An essay by curator Paul Moorhouse on how color informs developments throughout Riley's career accompanies over 30 color illustrations of her drawings and paintings from this period.
