Is this a painting? It appears to be moving. My eyes seem to be playing tricks on me. But, it is in fact an oil on canvas created by Bridget Riley. Known for her illusionistic paintings, this work is part of a series of works Riley designed in black and white. Titled Hesitate, this work is intended to evoke a particular emotion.
