Bridget Riley

by Jem Croucher


Saw Bridget Riley in the rain
In Worthing yesterday
Vertigo remembered
What more can I say?

These boring street-life objects
We pass by all the time
Given just a little zest
If not to say, sunshine

[I expect it’s the same all over, but artists in my neck of the woods (Sussex, UK) have taken, over the last few years, to decorating telephone exchange boxes and the like, found in our streets, with all sorts of strident themes. We started off with a bunch of cassette tapes but this is the first Bridget Riley(esque) one I’ve seen. The Vertigo reference is to the record label. Not known for sure who designed the centre labels used – but it’s long been credited back to Bridget Riley].
