'My paintings become an act of reverence for the landscape, a desire to study and observe the natural beauty and profound complexity of nature around me” says Davenport. “I look for a point between recognition, of the landscape, and the sensed experience of it. The abstraction allows for a layering of meaning that can be experienced in unison, the painting therefore is never static, yet there is an element of spirit too, in a constant striving for something just beyond the visible.'
Jo Davenport, Artist Statement 2020
Based in: Albury
Jo Davenport’s beautifully gestural paintings speak of an intense relationship with nature and an intimate experience of the artist's local environment. Her rich, painterly depictions represent the passing of time, the transience of the landscape and the ephemeral nature of memory itself. The vitality of the landscape that surrounds Davenport feeds into her paintings to create sophisticated fields of tension and release. Each painting is imbued with an energy that is a unique response – one that is rich and full of life. Ultimately these works reflect a conviction that life is never a passive encounter, but rather a transformative journey toward greater understanding.
