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.
