Jo Chew

About

The paintings of Hobart-born artist Jo Chew explore ideas of vulnerability and our dependence on structures and others around us.   Having created her own language of symbology that she often draws from – missing parts, temporary shelters, three legged dogs and irregular patterns – her work is diverse, colourful and painterly.  Jo Chew uses collage, the construction of maquettes influenced by stage design, and collected source images and stories as a starting point for series’ of paintings.
Jo Chew graduated from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2010 with high commendation, she has been represented by Despard since 2011.
