There’s a physical quality to Tess Jaray’s paintings that comes through even in digital reproductions. Scrolling through an email containing images from Into Light, an exhibition of her work open at Marlborough Fine Art in London through June 17, feels a bit like walking into a shaft of sunlight in an ancient alley.
Examining the geometry of pattern, repetition and colour within her surroundings, Tess Jaray has explored painterly perspective for more than five decades. Jaray focuses on producing the illusion of space, using perspective to create a field of spatial paradox that equates to distance and closeness in the mind. In many of her works the area of pattern is contained by a strong, grounding background colour, thereby controlling the movement of the forms.
Tess Jaray (b.1937) was born in Vienna, Austria and to moved to UK in 1938. She currently lives and works in London. The artist studied at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (1954-57) and later at Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (1957-60).
Taking inspiration from Islamic tilling, non-Western structures and Renaissance architecture. The exhibition is formed from a selection of new and early works with large-scale paintings of the theme of Aleppo and a series of small vibrant works, as well as drawings from throughout her career.
