BRIDGET RILEY:PAINTINGS 1963-2015

"I had to work through the black-and-white paintings before I could even begin to think about the possibilities of colour" (Bridget Riley, 2009)
During her career of over 60 years, Bridget Riley has used painting to investigate the nature of perception and the act of looking. Riley's work is strongly influenced by the experience of light and shade present in the natural world, as well as the history and traditions of painting itself.
This display features a carefully selected group of painting made between 1963 and 2015. Together they highlight the important relationship between black-and-white and colour in Riley's work.
During the early to mid-1960s, Riley used elementary, geometric shapes and black-and-white paint to produce paintings that provoke powerful physical sensations. In 1967, Riley began to use grey, and shortly after this, she introduced colour into her work. For the succeeding decades, Riley employed a rich array of colour as she continued to explore perception and sensation through several influential series of paintings.
In 2014, Riley once again began to make black-and-white paintings. However, rather than reworking ideas from the 1960s, these more recent works-such as Clair Obsur, 2015, on display here- function in a different way. Through an arrangement of more open triangular forms, this painting invites contemplation, and a slower pace of looking.

NEW DESIGNERS:KITTY JOSEPH

Kitty Joseph’s work explores colour and its application on the body through print. On graduation from the Royal College of Art in 2011, she collaborated on projects with milliner Piers Atkinson, long-time mentor and friend, fashion icon Zandra Rhodes, stylist Kim Howells, Lady Gaga, and Carine Roitfeld, amongst others. This was followed by the launch of her own ready-to-wear womenswear label. Several collections on, the brand has grown to acquire many influential stockists worldwide, including Colette in Paris, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and Liger in Hong Kong, amongst others.
Kitty Joseph's signature minimalist shapes evolve each season as a highly wearable canvas for textile concepts.. F/W 2016-17 is a play on colour interactions inspired by Josef Albers's Bauhaus studies, expressed with graphic prints including pixelated gradients, stripes and checks. S/S 2017 is about shifting bands of subtle tones, influenced by the nuances and cloud layers of London's sunset. Kitty's favourite materials are smart fabrics, particularly synthetics, developed for sports and utility wear.
She is noted for her versatility, having worked as a colour consultant for international fashion brands, as visiting lecturer in fashion textile and print design in various courses UK wide, and has undertaken colour trend analysis for leading prediction agencies.

PLUMP UP THE VOLUME

There are 2 products I've tested by  Dr. Brandt that promise to redensify volumes:
 One is Needles No More and the other is  Lineless lines no more for lips.
 1-  Needles No More is applied with a suitable brush on the cheeks by drawing an inverted triangle and keeps posing even all night, and it works. This  3-D Filler mask Needles No More by Dr. Brandt it helps to stimulate the production of natural collagen! The formula is a wise combination of hyaluronic acid, peptides and a plumping complex which, thanks to its firming action, helps to minimize the sagging effects of age-related.
 In the evening after applying the serum and night cream, step a brushstroke of this product on the cheeks and I leave it overnight. You can apply every day or whenever you want. (€ 96.50)
 2-Lineless lines no more for lips  is instead a cream that promises to help fill wrinkles by smoothing the surface of the lips giving you a result for full lips plumped, smoother and well-defined contour. Protects from free radical damage with  blend of anti-oxidants: Vitamin E, Green Tea, White Tea & Grape Seed Extract.
 Honestly I did not see specific results following the application of this product, is also not very moisturizing and after I applied it I need  to roll out even  a layer of lip balm. (€ 30.00)

 Ci sono 2 prodotti che ho testato del Dr. Brandt che promettono di ridensificare i volumi:
 Uno è Needles No More e l'altro è Lineless lines no more for lips.
1- Needles No More si applica con un apposito pennello sulle guance disegnando un triangolo capovolto e si tiene in posa anche per tutta la notte, e funziona. Questa maschera 3-D Filler Needles No More di Dr. Brandt contribuisce a stimolare la produzione di collagene naturale! La formula è una sapiente combinazione di acido ialuronico, di peptidi e di un complesso rimpolpante che, grazie alla sua azione ridensificante, aiuta a minimizzare gli effetti del rilassamento cutaneo legato all'età.
 La sera dopo aver applicato il siero e la crema notte, passo una pennellata di questo prodotto sulle guance e lo faccio agire tutta la notte. Si può applicare tutti i giorni e/o ogni volta che si desidera. (€96,50)
 2-Lineless lines no more for lips invece è una crema che promette di aiutare a colmare le rughe levigando la superficie delle labbra regalandoti un per risultato labbra carnose, rimpolpate, più morbide e dal contorno ben definito. Protegge dai danni dei radicali liberi con una miscela di antiossidanti: vitamina E, tè verde, tè bianco e estratto di semi d'uva.
  Francamente non ho visto risultati particolari a seguito dell'applicazione di questo prodotto, inoltre non è molto idratante e dopo averlo applicato sento l'esigenza di doverci stendere sopra anche un velo di balsamo labbra. (€30,00)
