Jo Lee - Multi media artist

Jo Lee first appeared in one of our Graduate Shows. Even then, it was easy to see that she was a talented and mature artist

Her latest work is on show  during October in the Print and Clay Exhibition   Core to her work is a fascination with the human form and the human condition. Jo’s work is influenced by ordinary day-to-day events, life, living and ultimately our demise and is interested by the ways in which a person’s life can be acknowledged and validated.

Graduating in 2007 with a first Class Honours Degree in Ceramics Jo’s work has diversified to encompass mixed media including drawing, painting, photography, sometimes combining these in performance art, public installations, workshops in drawing, workshops in casting, working with people of all ages, from 1 month to 100.

Jo’s new ceramic work shown here at The Gallery at Bevere incorporates photography and digital manipulation along with slip cast porcelain forms creating unique characters belonging to the world of Joville.

Babushka meets Mr Potato Head meets Fuzzy Felt … welcome to the world of Joville.
