Tess Jaray
Aleppo from The Dark  2016
Acrylic on panel (triptych)
156 × 315 cm  |  61 3/8 × 124 1/8 in (total)
Aleppo from the Dark is inspired by Jaray's trip to Syria just before the start of the war. The laser-cut zigzags at the centre of each panel not only evoke the arches of Aleppo's mosques, but also bring to mind internal disjuncture and fragility.
