Tessa Newcomb

Tessa Newcombs art arises from piercingly clear, pristine perceptions of the everyday and natural worlds. The drawings she continually makes - such as on riotously weedy Suffolk allotments, observing curious, even bizzare happenings in manicured Parisian squares or alongside Venetian canals, and while ambling or cycling amoing the clear light and spacious landscapes of East Angela - are a rich imaginative source of her paintings.

This well illustrated book - partly based on the authors conversations with Tessa - is the first survey of this artist of singular vision, with a keen, popular following.
