The celebrated Art Deco architecture of the Barber Institute of Fine Arts provides the inspiration for From Outside, the Tess Jaray exhibition currently showing at the venue.

One of the UK’s most distinguished living artists, Tess uses the show to continue her career-long meditation on space, colour, form and pattern, presenting minimal, abstract compositions in subtle shades of green, blue, buff and pink. 

A selection of drawings made by Tess throughout her career accompanies the exhibition, not only shedding light on her method of work but also demonstrating her interest in experimentation and her meticulous eye for detail. 

A display of 1930s photographs and architectural blueprints of the Barber further complements the exhibition.
