One has only to glance at the paintings of Jo Davenport, with their exquisite colour and free, undulating forms, before thoughts of both the earthbound and the ethereal quickly spring to mind. Davenport calls upon the attributes of nature, its textures and atmosphere, to inform her visual vocabulary. The flourishing images she creates suggest a kind of spatial reality in which the transitory is held captive. Through the coalescence of abstraction and heightened colouration, the artist imbues the intangible experience and its recollection, with a palpable and unwavering energy. The results are as timeless as the earth itself.
