land marked 2024

In her work, Jo uses pre-owned paper maps to respond to the marks we make on the landscape. For this exhibition Jo has sourced maps of Arundel and the surrounding areas. She paints and makes marks on these maps in response to the roads, towns, cities, and villages that make up this part of West Sussex.


Jo’s practice relies heavily on chance and random connections. As part of her process she cuts up the maps and reconstructs them. This deconstruction and subsequent weaving together of the fragments serve as a metaphor for our fragmented and interconnected lives. Through this reassembly, she strives to uncover new patterns and directions, seeking harmony amidst the chaos and discord that surrounds us.


Jo invites viewers to rethink their perceptions of place and movement. Each piece represents a journey, reflecting the ever-changing nature of our relationship with the spaces we inhabit. By reimagining these maps, she aims to highlight the fluidity and interconnectedness of our world, encouraging a deeper contemplation of how we navigate and impact our environment.


Jo is a mixed media artist. She originally studied at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design and holds a BA(Hons) in textiles. After a ten-year career in graphic design, she returned to study at the University for the Creative Arts earning an MA with distinction in art textiles in 2016.


Jo has shown work in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. In 2017 she had a joint exhibition with Naoya Doi at the prestigious GalleryGallery in Kyoto, Japan. She has also had

work selected for the RA Summer Exhibition in 2022 and 2024.
