Biography



 
My paintings are serendipitous discoveries revealed through open-minded experimentation. I paint as if treasure hunting, inspired by possibilities in pursuit of the novel. There are no accidents on my canvases, only coincidences. Perhaps Robert Motherwell of the New York School put it best: "In the brush doing what it is doing, it will stumble upon what one couldn't do by oneself.”
 
 
Jay Exon began flourishing a brush painting scenery for the theater during his apprenticeship with noted set designer Richard Ellis. In 2015, Jay began painting full-time and soon developed a career as an independent artist. Though his abstract style is a departure from that of his formal training, he brings to each work a sense of theatricality.
 
Jay lives and works in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
