Jay Sullivan

Jay creates photography and video art. His work falls at the intersection of memory, psychology and the creative process. He intentionally chooses subjects that challenge his emotional and psychological boundaries, seeking to understand a limiting emotional or psychological barrier within himself. He then creates a creative process that helps him go beyond those limitations. The creative process and its resulting effect upon the artist are the core of his work.

Jay studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology and received his Masters of Fine Art in Creative Practice from the University of Plymouth UK/Transart Institute for Creative Research in 2018.
