Australian Escape | Landscapes by Alex ‘Ajay’ Jennings
Saturday 27 February, 6pm - 9pm
One Night Only
Through the study of Communication Design, Ajay developed an interest in the realm of image-making and the connection between visual and verbal language. Through Art & Design and a visceral collaboration with the viewer, he hopes to position a narrative that challenges people to see beyond the object.
Prior to 2014, Ajay’s primary focus was digital design. It wasn’t until later that year - after being diagnosed with CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) - that he could fully immerse himself into painting, a more intimate practice.
Australian Escape is a small collection of Ajay’s works completed from his studio in Northcote over the past 6 months. A manifestation of his chronic illness, these paintings offer him a form of escapism whilst opening up a channel for communication.
