Tess Jaray was associated with a group of artists exhibiting in London in the early 1960s known as 'Situation'. They were concerned with producing large abstract paintings which referred to space rather than aspects of the material world. 'Salisbury Green' is a characteristic work, featuring strong geometrical shapes and exploring interactions between colour and form. In recent years she has received several commissions to produce works for public spaces, including flooring for Victoria Station in London and the Wakefield Cathedral precinct, and the paving, lighting and seating for Centenary Square in Birmingham. Her paintings can be found in the Tate Gallery, the Arts Council and other major collections in Britain and abroad.
