Jack Early

New York, NY | Edenton, NC


Contemporary artist Jack Early was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and graduated from North Carolina School of the Arts. His ascent to fame began in the late 1980s as one-half of the duo Pruitt-Early with artist Rob Pruitt.  Early seems never to have left his childhood; his playful wit and openness are the foundation for his work.  Early’s lexicon is drawn from wondrous childhood memories, where ordinary things and events can leave long-lasting impressions.   Aware of how visual and auditory phenomena can trigger us, he composes experiences to communicate sweet remembrances of simpler times.
