Seurat to Riley – The Art of Perception

This small exhibition at the Holburne Museum Bath is more Bridget Riley and her peers than Seurat – there are only two of his pictures. On a number of the perceptually challenging pictures such as this one, you are invited to experience the sensation of colours appearing or a sense of movement. This does happen some of the time and it may be one needs to stare for longer for the brain to be fooled. I preferred some of the powerful colour grids that give a strong but misleading sense of 3D.
