Jo Dyer is an Australian artist that lives in the coastal town of Newcastle, Australia.
Jo works with a variety of media with a preference for contrasting and layering texture and detail. A recurring theme in Jo’s work is her exploration of the human condition and she uses colourful and abstract detail to depict complex inner realms of thought and feeling. Through her work, Jo contemplates the invisible world of tangled up attachment and explores how our emotional, psychological and spiritual ties define us.
She received her BA in Creative Arts and French at the University of Newcastle which included a semester of exchange in La Rochelle, France. Since graduating Jo has taken part in a number of solo and group exhibitions and has been involved in various creative projects through city revitalisation initiative Renew Newcastle.
Jo’s solo exhibition G A R D E N S T A T E will open at Gallery 139 on Saturday 18th August 2018
