Tess Jaray RA [British, b.1937] is a painter and printmaker.  Jaray studied at St Martin’s School of Art (1954 – 1957) and the Slade School of Art (1957 – 1960), where she later taught for many years.


Her work is characterized by the enigmatic interaction of forms and colors. The patterns she creates suggest spatial ambiguities and shifting structures which work on the viewer’s perceptions in subtle ways.


She has artworks in many public collections, including the Tate and the British Museum, and her paving designs can be seen in Centenary Square, Birmingham and the forecourt of Victoria Station. In 2010 she published a book of her collected writings, Painting: Mysteries and Confessions.
