About artist

Working from his Melbourne studio Jesse Dayan’s practice is built upon a continued research and engagement with many traditions of oil painting and a keen interest in the narrative functioning of images. His recent body of work takes as a starting point the quiet domestic spaces of everyday life.  These works begin with a process of drawing which allows for the transcendence of perspectival logic and a development of the poetic possibilities of space.

Jesse has been a finalist in several national art awards including, The Arthur Guy Memorial Art Prize, The National Works on Paper Award; The Heysen and The Ron Eutick Still Life Awards.  He has previously been shortlisted for the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship and the Australia Council – Kunstlerhaus Bethanien Residency.  In 2013 he was invited to contribute to the Chris Kraus Symposium : Aliens and Anorexia at the Royal College of Arts London.
