Marlborough Graphics selection of prints by Tess Jaray, Beatriz Milhazes and Bridget Riley express a vibrant quality encompassing an energetic appearance through bold colours and dynamic compositions.
Through the printmaking process, Tess Jaray expresses a meticulous consideration of the dynamism of form. Her use of pattern and colour, keep the eye in a constant state of flux moving over the pictorial space.
Beatriz Milhazes’ colourful, kaleidoscopic prints draw on both Latin American and European traditions. Milhazes’ rigorously structured compositions are punctuated by a recurring set of arabesque motifs inspired by Brazilian culture.
Bridget Riley’s interest in the medium of print is related to her work as a painter, rather than in its traditional vehicle for reproduction. The printing process seems to easily compel for Riley, the images she was visualising: producing crisp edges and absolute flatness.
