Bridget Riley (1931-present)
'Riley is a greater influence on contemporary art than we give her credit for. She has that quiet, unegotistical Britishness about her. Her work has stood the test of time and been relevant to many generations. I've always loved her work - the geometry, the colours, the abstractness. I never get bored of looking at it; it always makes me feel optimistic. The art world is now so much more celebrity-led than it used to be, it's refreshing to see a woman who is judged almost entirely on her work.'
