Dark Green with Four 1971

Tess Jaray (b.1937)

Leicestershire County Council Artworks Collection

British painter, graphic artist, and designer. She studied at *St Martin's School of Art, 1954–7, and the *Slade School, 1957–60. From 1964 to 1968 she taught at Hornsey College of Art, London, and subsequently at the Slade School. Her work is abstract, using geometrical shapes subtly arranged and typically painted in soft colours. Sometimes they form a kind of irregular grid evoking the decorative patterns of Islamic architecture (Minaret, 1967, Graves Gallery, Sheffield).
