Bridget Riley: Cosmos
Jenny Harper, Richard Shiff, Paul Moorhouse, Eric de Chassey and Bridget Riley
Bridget Riley’s paintings require our active participation – there’s no chance of uninvolved viewing either from a distance or closer up.
Cosmos is Christchurch Art Gallery’s new wall painting, and the fourth of five major works acquired to mark our extended time of closure following the Canterbury earthquakes of 2010–11. It is accompanied by an exhibition that summarises some sixty years of committed practice by this internationally-acclaimed English artist, from a 1959 copy of Georges Seurat’s The Bridge at Courbevoie to her newest painting made for Christchurch. Highly individual and richly imbued with lessons from her respected forebears, we reveal a lifetime of continuous experimentation within self-imposed limits.
