Jon Aye's latest work deals directly with Britain's contemporary urban environment and inhabitants. Aye's engagingly light and colourful paintings explore the tender relationship between human life and urban fabric in the most metropolitan centres of this isle: Leeds, London and Nottingham. ‘My aim has been to make work that acknowledges and confronts the presence of an urban environment and the effect it has on the social practices that occur within it, so as to trace the ways in which instances of activity can manifest beyond the sanctioned practices and official organization of an established social space,' Jon Aye. A specific focus on the suburban and non-city centre is consistent through the paintings on display. Aye's rigorous method of observation is lead by off-the-hoof drawings, photographs and written notes: unsurprisingly his work retains an immediacy and freshness akin to direct witness. Aye studied at Chelsea (2005) and Oxford University's Ruskin School (2008) before taking Fine Art MA at Leeds University (2009). Aye's illustrative work has featured in Oxonian Literary Review and The Isis Magazine. Aye set designed for The Infernal Machine and was selected for the 2008 H20 Venture Partners Recent Graduates Exhibition. His influences include Ron Kitaj, John Atkinson Grimshaw, John Bellany and Reggie Pedro.
