Examining the geometry of pattern, repetition, color and architectural form within her surroundings, British artist Tess Jaray has explored painterly perspective for more than five decades. Areas of pattern—whether polygons, waves or rectangles—are contained by a strong background colour, thereby controlling the movement of the forms. This extensively illustrated survey of Jaray’s paintings from the 1960s to the present is accompanied by texts that situate the artist within the tradition of abstract painting and the history of art, from Kazimir Malevich and Lucio Fontana to Italian architecture and Islamic mosaics. Jaray has had solo exhibitions at both the Whitechapel Gallery and the Serpentine. Texts by Richard Davey, John Stezaker and Alison Wilding, along with an interview by Alister Warman.
