Tess Jaray, a British artist and influential teacher at the Slade School of Fine Art, came to prominence in the 1960s through early exhibitions of paintings that aligned her with other optically oriented artists such as Bridget Riley, and her later pursuit of public commissions—including the forecourt of London’s Victoria Station—brought her work to a wider public. Jaray’s work demonstrates a deep involvement with the relationship between architectural and pictorial spaces, one that can be traced from her brickwork public commissions to the perceptual space she constructs in her prints.
