Text Quotes
An artist’s early work is inevitably made up of a mixture of tendencies and interests, some of which are compatible and some of which are in conflict.  (Bridget Riley Quotes) In general, my paintings are multifocal. You can’t call it unfocused space, but not being fixed to a single focus is very much of our time.  (Bridget Riley Quotes) I think this lack of a center has something to do with the loss of certainties that Christianity had to offer  (Bridget Riley Quotes) Painting is, I think, inevitably an archaic activity and one that depends on spiritual values  (Bridget Riley Quotes) I work with nature, although in completely new terms  (Bridget Riley Quotes) I used to build up to sensation, accumulating tension until it released a perceptual experience  (Bridget Riley Quotes) Focusing isn’t just an optical activity; it is also a mental one  (Bridget Riley Quotes) For me nature is not landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces  (Bridget Riley Quotes) If you can allow colour to breathe, to occupy its own space, to play its own game in its unstable way, it’s wanton behaviour, so to speak. It is promiscuous like nothing  (Bridget Riley Quotes) An artist’s failures are as valuable as his successes: by misjudging one thing he conforms something else, even if at the time he does not know what that something else is  (Bridget Riley Quotes) In general, my paintings are multifocal. You can’t call it unfocused space, but not being fixed to a single focus is very much of our time  (Bridget Riley Quotes) It is important that the painting can be inhabited, so that the mind’s eye, or the eye’s mind, can move about it credibly  (Bridget Riley Quotes) His failures are as valuable as his successes: by misjudging one thing he conforms something else, even if at the time he does not know what that something else is  (Bridget Riley Quotes) The actual basis of colour is instability. Once you accept that in lieu of something which is stable, which is form, you are dealing with something which is unstable in its basic character, you begin to get a way of dealing with it  (Bridget Riley Quotes) It seems the deeper, truer personality of the artist only emerges in the making of decisions... in refusing and accepting, changing and revising  (Bridget Riley Quotes) I never make studies from nature. They would get in the way. I make use of my mind  (Bridget Riley Quotes) Painting is a science pursued as an enquiry into the laws of nature... Observation is considered the key to natural science  (Bridget Riley Quotes) The eye can travel over the surface in a way parallel to the way it moves over nature. It should feel caressed and soothed, experience frictions and ruptures, glide and drift. One moment, there will be nothing to look at and the next second the canvas seems to refill, to be crowded with visual events  (Bridget Riley Quotes) For me nature is not landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces, an event rather than an appearance. These forces can only be tackled by treating color and form as ultimate identities, freeing them from all descriptive or functional roles  (Bridget Riley Quotes) There was a time when meanings were focused and reality could be fixed; when that sort of belief disappeared, things became uncertain and open to interpretation  (Bridget Riley Quotes) As the artist picks his way along, rejecting and accepting as he goes, certain patterns of enquiry emerge  (Bridget Riley Quotes) As a painter today you have to work without that essential platform. But if one does not deceive oneself and accepts this lack of certainty, other things may come into play  (Bridget Riley Quotes) An artist’s early work is inevitably made up of a mixture of tendencies and interests, some of which are compatible and some of which are in conflict  (Bridget Riley Quotes)
