Bridget Riley inspired visuals

Descending - Bridget Riley

I went to the Bridget Riley exhibition at the National Gallery today. Two things, firstly I was totally shocked to realise I hadn’t in fact ever been there before, what a disgrace! What a magnificent building, made even more grand by the giant exquisite paintings which have such vivid colours despite their age. Back to Bridget Riley, her paintings are a study of shape, colour and space. You could say she gave birth to computer psychedelic visuals in the 60s. The exhibition isn’t large but I was moved in different ways, it was joyful, playful and reflective. I came away once again really wanting to be able to create my own computer visuals, will have to look into it. In the meantime I found this video a short one based on Bridget’s work:

The exhibition is on until the 22 May 2010. http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/whats-on/exhibitions/bridget-riley
