Bridget Riley at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington

October 5, 2017

Check out the murals by Bridget Riley on floors 8, 9 & 10 of the QEQM building at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London.

 

The pink one, completed in 2014 takes its inspiration from a visit Riley made to Egypt and echo the fixed colour palettes and decorative style of architectural painting used by the ancient Egyptians. 

 

The other two murals on floor 8 & 9 were installed in 1987. With their saturated colours and flowing, rhythmic stripes, these murals are painted directly on to the hospital walls.

 

Bridget Riley is one of the foremost exponents of Op art whose work can be found at Tate Modern
