Jo Holt is a London based Installation artist. She works with a vast variety of materials from ceramics to glass, metal, textiles, light and movement. To her each material has a voice of its own, she applies that voice to further add depth and feeling to her work.
Holt investigates themes around otherworldliness and the ethereal. Touching on the subjects of life, death, rebirth, timelessness, weightlessness, fluidity and journeying. She is currently working on the theme of the unseen.
Alongside her material explorations are explorations of the use of space and ways to manipulate and display work in space. Deciding shape, form, scale, positioning of each piece in space with the viewer in mind to create captivating experiences.
