Alcaston Gallery is delighted to present Jaye Early's second solo exhibition with Alcaston Gallery. Incorporating vivid paintings, and evidence of process (photography, impromptu notes on feelings and thoughts, mixed media, wall painting, and other visual devices), it represents an exciting development for the artist.

In this new body of work Jaye examines themes of private experiences in public spaces and the role confessional art plays in shaping self-subjectivity. The exhibition addresses issues of the public identity and aesthetics of the private self within the context of social media and reality television.

Jaye Early won the University of Melbourne Murrup Barak Award in the 2015 Koorie Art Show, Koorie Heritage Trust, Melbourne. In 2016 his work was acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Also in 2016 he was a finalist in the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize, Melbourne's new and highly competitive contemporary art award.

To be opened by Dr Mark Shorter, Lecturer in Sculpture and Spatial Practice, Victoria College of the Arts.
