This book presents both the dynamic energy and visual complexity of the work of Bridget Riley, who is arguably one of the most outstanding painters of the past several decades.
It focuses on an exhibition orchastrated by Dia in New York. The meeting between Dia and Bridget Riley was initiated and shaped by curator Lynne Cooke, who has known the artist and her work since the early 1980's. In consultation with the artist Lynne Cooke has edited this book, including her own essay as well as a fresh amd extensive critical text written by John Elderfield, chief curator at large at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
The book is an excellent read with beautiful plates that capture Bridet Riley's work at its best.
