This mixed media work is intended to "evoke the physical and emotional upheaval of major change, in this case moving house. It is a time for reflection on the past, as memories are uncovered, and a time for contemplation of the future." This work is from studies drawn from around Jo's old home and the surrounding area, including nearby allotments where change and renewal is a constant.
"In making these paintings I have used collage, acrylic, collograph print and oil to recreate the dynamics of major change."
