London, Karsten Schubert, Bridget Riley: Works on Paper 1980 - 1992, 15 October - 14 November 1992

“Riley’s respect for perception allows her to enter into dialogue with her own artistic process. Her work is very precise, like that of the Op artists with whom critics once associated her; but she never experiences total control of her vision. Nor would she wish to. The effects she seeks inhabit an illusive medium”
