Jesse Ash’s work configures a personal and material relationship to politics by imposing processes of reconstruction and abstraction upon existing images, sounds and words of disseminated ideology.
Ash’s work often uses the formal supports of these authorities such as political convention stage sets, newspaper imagery, rhetorical devises, gestures or advertising strategies.
Ash combines these with processes of delicate craft and personally driven narratives. He is also interested in the radical potential of speech, rumour and gossip.
Ash studied at Goldsmiths, The Royal College of Art and Nottingham Trent University.
