BIOGRAPHY




Jo Holt is a British contemporary sculptor and installation artist. Holt investigates themes around otherworldliness and the ethereal. Touching on the subjects of life, death, rebirth, timelessness and weightlessness. She is currently working on the theme of the unseen. 

She works with a vast variety of materials from ceramics to glass, metal to 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.

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.

She was selected to exhibit at the Mall Galleries for the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition 2018. Given a commendation at Surrey Sculpture Prize in 2018 and won the Surrey Sculpture Society Emerging Sculptor Award 2019.
