Description

Jo lives and works in Albury from her rural property just outside of Splitters Creek. She is represented by commercial galleries in both Sydney and Melbourne holding sell-out exhibitions.

Jo is inspired by the river ways and landscapes of the Murray region, drawing inspiration from the Murray River and Wonga Wetlands.

With this inspiration Jo paints large scale oil paintings. These paintings are an abstract view of the environment, reducing the environment to impressions and marks of colour that allude to a reality.

Here & Now features Jo's most recent work, 11 large scale canvases, which will be exhibited for the first time at MAMA.

The works will be available for purchase as part of MAMA's aim to promote the availability and accessibility of contemporary art for the primary art market – from the artists rather than auction houses.
