THE BLUE CUPBOARD: INSPIRATIONS AND RECOLLECTIONS -- TESS JARAY. Royal Academy of Arts, London, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Abrams, New York. 212 pp. with 45 ills. (28 col.). 21 x 14 cm. ISBN 9781910350096 In English.
Publisher's description: "This book was started as a memoir of my mother and subsequently developed into something more like a diary, covering my recollections of a postwar childhood in Worcestershire, an art-school education, and subsequent obsessions. It may be read in the light, or perhaps one should say in the shadow of its political history." So begins Tess Jaray's remarkable memoir. Whether providing insights into the mind of an artist or recounting the eccentricities of Jaray's singular childhood, The Blue Cupboard is a life-affirming testimonial to a creative existence. A painter and printmaker whose work is characterized by an enigmatic interaction of forms and colors, Jaray creates patterns that suggest spatial ambiguities and shifting structures that work on the viewer's perceptions in subtle ways. Her artworks can be found in many public collections, and her unique pavement designs can be seen all over England.
