“Primarily my work is autobiographical: Whether navigating hesitant paths of fragility and fear associated in the psychological surrender present in various sexual/private/ public contracts, or the anxieties surrounding unwavering experiences of lonesomeness, and lack of any authentic connection with others -often exacerbated in an era of endemic superficiality, or the failure of culture to address my subjective sensibilities- sometimes resulting in laborious cycles of habitual and often vicious self- destructive patterns. Given this, an intension of my work is to consciously transform my personal dislocation/s into a visual strategy of disclosure. Another, less conscious, intension is to reach out to the viewer without the need (hopefully) to re-inscribe or idealize the hyper-subjectivity, ego, or sentimentality sometimes associated with documenting a lived experience. I’m less interested in breaking taboos, but rather more stimulated by exploring the reality in and between things and saying the unsayable-or perhaps giving some kind of uniqueness to what has already been said before. This image is part of my work currently exhibiting at the SCA mid-year postgraduate degree show” – Jaye Early.
