This volume draws together ten important public commissions by Tess Jaray - one of Britain's foremost painters and printmakers - through images, new and republished essays and an interview with the artist.

For over three decades, Jaray's abstract painting and printmaking has been complemented by a series of public art projects that extends her investigation of architectural space and perspective, taking it out of the studio and into our shared spaces.

Considering the dynamics of form, pattern and colour, Jaray's public art transforms its architectural surroundings with sequences of interlocking geometric shapes. Working primarily with materials such as brick, stone and metal, the forms of Jaray's public squares are often held in an equilibrium of movement and stillness.

This publication features an essay by the art critic Charles Darwent that situates Jaray's projects within the tradition of twentieth-century public art, an interview with the artist by Doro Globus, as well as historic statements by Richard Cork and Glyn Emrys, among others.
