Newcastle University MFA exhibition - Paul Jex

Paul Jex makes observations regarding the distances and boundaries as to how art is approached.



Jex uses systems of shared knowledge, observations and perceptions to explore authenticity and how an audience engages with art whether this be art institutions, publications, the internet or during conversation.



Paul Jex is focused on the tangential, the liminal spaces and boundaries of art. At the centre of his practice is the act of collecting, appropriating and referencing of art. His selections of artworks are supported by anecdotes that reveal the sequence of the artists’ investigations – the chances and discoveries.
