DESIRE LINES: THE PUBLIC ART OF TESS JARAY. Ridinghouse, London, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 67 ills. (56 col.). 23 x 20 cm. ISBN 9781909932258 In English.
Publisher's description: For over thirty years British painter and printmaker Tess Jaray's (b. 1937) abstract painting has been complemented by a series of large public art projects in which she extended her investigation of space and perspective. Working primarily in brick, stone and metal, Jaray plays with the dynamics of form, pattern and color to transform architectural surroundings into sequences of interlocking geometric shapes that balance movement and stillness. Ten of the artist's important public commissions, including her design for London's Victoria Station, Centenary Square in Birmingham, and the forecourt for the new British Embassy in Moscow, are presented in over 60 images in this slender catalog from Ridinghouse, her second following an earlier survey. An essay by London-based art critic/historian Charles Darwent situating Jaray's public projects within the tradition of 20th-century public art accompanies an interview with the artist by Doro Globus and historic statements by British art historian Richard Cork and architect Glyn Emrys, among others.
