Jo Sykes

A semi-abstract, expressive artist melding landscape with reflections on life, I take elements of actual landscape to visually describe our internal, subconscious, emotional and reactive ‘landscape’. My paintings bring to your home beautiful places you can escape to. They can also give a voice to your subconscious trying to make sense of your place in the world. On my website at www.josykesart.com I describe in more detail the process behind my paintings.

In paint I work mainly with oil and cold wax medium, working quickly and responsively to the moment, building up and working with layers in a dance of hiding and reveal. For drawing I love the simplicity and slow, gentle pace of working in graphite – the resulting monochrome images are pleasing and calming, yet pull you in closer to see the complexity and detail.
