Product story

A form of pillar, perhaps? Or maybe a road from above? Across this simple, geometric digital print, Tess Jaray repeats an arrow-like motif to disorient the viewer and suggest spatial ambiguities.

Jarad’s use of bold colour creates a subtle pulsating effect, compelling the eye to constantly adjust between stack and background. The work’s perfectly flat surface ensures nothing intrudes upon the viewer’s experience, and mimics the effect Jaray achieves in her paintings and screenprinted works.
