Shimmering silvers like MIRAGE GRAY are a hallmark feature of British artist Bridget Riley’s art, allowing her to create mesmerizing depth, movement and space. Riley is widely recognized today as the iconic leader of 1960s Op Art, and she pushed the visual effects of pattern to the extreme, exploring how dots, wavy lines and patterns could induce hallucinogenic effects like warping, dizziness and afterimages.

Working with shades of black, white and grey throughout the 1960s gave Riley room to focus exclusively on shape, line and design, and the ways they could become activated, as if living and breathing. She observed, “In my earlier paintings, I wanted the space between the picture plane and the spectator to be active.

At a heavier weight of 7.1 ounces this 100% linen is referred to as Rustic due to its more textured look and feel. Durable and perfect for projects that require just a bit more substance.

The cloth is Softened so we have added a softener to give it a silkier hand. The fabric has not been laundered so shrinkage will still have to be taken into consideration (shrinkage depends on fabric weave and laundering method).
