ABOUT

BIOGRAPHY

Gavin Jay studied fine art at Kingston University before picking up bass guitar and touring the world with Jim Jones Revue. He kept his hand in with the visual arts designing album covers and tour posters, and in recent years has returned to focusing on his fine art practice whilst continuing to record with Jim Jones and other artists.

Influenced by figures such as Max Ernst and Joseph Cornell filtered through Pop Art, Victoriana, the occult, pulp sci-fi, antique toy theatres and anatomical models, Gavin brings a unique approach to his surrealist collages. Drawing on a wealth of esoteric imagery harvested from the libraries of the world his work is both nostalgic and quietly disturbing, conjuring scenes from impossible narratives that exist suspended in Lynchian dream spaces.

Gavin has participated in various group shows in London and Brighton and in 2019 had his first solo exhibition at HOK Gallery in Den Haag (Netherlands.)
