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.
