A rare exhibition, Bridget Riley – Recent Screenprints 2004-11, will take place at Diss Corn Hall Gallery from June 8 to 30.

Riley was one of a group of young artists in the 1960s who changed the face and direction of British art and had a profound influence on design and fashion. Her black and white abstract images were immediately recognisable and became labelled “Op Art”. Since then her work has moved in phases as she has explored the relationships between specific forms and colours.

The exhibition traces changes in her art over the last ten years as she explores new ideas and revisits earlier ones. The first set of screenprints relate to her “Egyptian” period; the second series use the curve, with bigger, simpler forms and fewer colours. In her most recent prints she reverts to linear forms, but with broader bands and softer colours, culminating in “Rose, Rose”, the print she has created to celebrate the Olympics.

The exhibition, organised in conjunction with Karsten Schubert Gallery, London and David Case Fine Art, is open in Diss Monday to Saturday, 11am-4pm. Entry is free. There will be an evening viewing on Wednesday, June 13, 6pm-7.45pm.
