The detachment of colour from reproduced objects – Bridget Riley and Rupprecht Geiger handle this major modernist theme in very different ways. Early on, Rupprecht Geiger began his work on completely transforming paintings into colour fields. In the process he not only experimented with formats but also deliberately heightened colour contrasts. Bridget Riley is concerned with seeing colours and experiencing their interplay. In her studies she already investigates the way that coloured stripes, diamonds and semicircles set the viewer in motion. Even before it represents anything else, Riley and Geiger show that a painting is primarily a manifestation of colour.
