All advice is autobiographical. Death defines the conditions of living

Jaye Early

Front Gallery
14 Apr 2018–5 May 2018
Opening 6pm Saturday April 14th

Opening 13 April, 6–8pm

All advice is autobiographical. Death defines the conditions of living is an exhibition that examines how process can determine painting outcomes. Through a largely experimental process, Jaye Early experiments with technique and composition, allowing a collision of elements to take place within the work. This creates uncomfortable tensions and contrasts that materialise through mixed media components. 

This exhibition aims to incorporate a broader, freer and less restrained approach in Early’s painting practice. Through contrasted aesthetics and a mix of different ideas, the works remain playful and exciting, resisting static resolutions. Narratives are suggested without becoming definitive statements, allowing a sense of speculation and openness in the work.

  • Jaye Early is a Melbourne-based, multidisciplinary artist. An intention if his work is to consciously transform his personal dislocations into a visual strategy of self-disclosure. Early has exhibited nationally and internationally in a number of group and solo exhibitions. He has been a finalist for a number of prominent art prizes, including: The Koorie Heritage Prize (2016), Hornsby Art Prize (2016), Redlands Art Award (2016) Bayside Acquisitive Prize (2016), The Black Swan Prize for Portraiture (2013). He was also a semi-finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize (2013). Early's work has been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria and Victoria University.
