Bridget Riley, Past into Present

This exhibition principally features work by Bridget Riley from the last two years, with reference to the work of the past, both in her own practice and in the art of painting itself. Over the course of her more than six-decade career, Riley has frequently returned to earlier ideas and even to specific works in order to identify alternative directions that a form could take. As she has noted, ‘I am sometimes asked “What is your objective” and this I cannot truthfully answer. I work “from” something rather than “towards” something. It is a process of discovery.’

Sophie Barber, How much love can a love bird love, can a love bird love a love bird

Barber’s chosen title came from an innocuous entry in the artist’s internet search history. (Contrary to popular belief, lovebird parrots do not die when separated, although the strength of their connection is heartening.) But in its repetition, the reconstituted tongue twister touches upon the unseen relationship between each of Barber’s subjects. Beneath the oil and the presence, these are paintings about affection, attraction, memory, love; the way in which certain images attach themselves to us – and we to them – for reasons more profound than subject matter alone. ‘To do this’, Barber says of her practice and of painting more broadly, ‘there has to be a level of obsession with an image. You have to be obsessed.’
