Tess Jaray @ Barber Institute

27 February 2019 - 12 May 2019

The elegant Art Deco design of this gallery inspires six major new paintings by Tess Jaray, RA. One of Britain’s most distinguished and influential painters and printmakers, Jaray works in the abstract tradition, and her contemplations on form and colour have been inspired by architecture for more than 50 years. These meditative yet monumental canvases – created specially for this exhibition – demonstrate the continuing importance of the built environment as a source of inspiration to Jaray, and explore the spatial and emotional qualities of structure, mass and surface through lyrical colour, geometry and pattern. The exhibition is enhanced by a selection of drawings created throughout Jaray’s career, on display off the nearby Green Gallery print bay.
