Tess Jaray

b. 1931, United Kingdom

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).
