Postage Stamp Collage---
This tribute to Bridget Riley is created from over 3000 used postage stamps and is based on a detail from a 1961 picture entitled ‘Movement in Squares’- one of the best known iconic early works. Her designs call for a response from her audience. Her work ‘Op (Optical) Art’ as it became known was based on a black and white palette creating intense optical disturbances when stared at for a while without blinking. Her style, working slowly and methodically suits Pete’s stamp art using simple elements such as the oval, curve, square and even zigzag ~ her achievement however is massive scale which one day Pete wishes to emulate given the right future commission.
