Jay Senetchko is a primarily self-taught Vancouver painter. Born in Edmonton, he began painting in 2000. He has taught life drawing and composition privately and at the Vancouver Film School since 2002. In March 2011, he showed a series of perfect little still life paintings at Vancouver’s Jacana Gallery. Apologia, at Pera Gallery until April 23, showcases works based on various art historical moments, philosophies and painters. Systems at Ian Tan Gallery features portraits of people, elegantly painted and without pretense.

Senetchko's style can be refreshingly straight-forward and guileless. With an eye for the three-dimensional heft of sheer, physical volume and the transient effects of light, he is able to paint with the apparent ease of Edward Hopper and the simplicity of Ralph Goings. Although he seems to hide his gift in a great deal of his work, the paintings in Apologia and Systems show a clear, mature understanding of his capacity.

Jay Senetchko graduated from the University of Alberta in 1997 with a Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction then spent several years as a professional soccer player in Edmonton and Montreal. He moved to Vancouver in 2000 and earned a Classical Animation Diploma from the Vancouver Film School in 2001.
