Jo Holt is a sculptor & installation artist based in London. Currently studying for a Diploma in Sculpture at Art Academy London, where she is working prolifically in ceramics, glass, metal, textiles, light and movement. To her each material has a voice of its own, she applies that voice to further add depth 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/active experiences.
In August 2018 she was selected out of over 1,300 applicants to exhibit at the Mall Galleries for the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition.
She was commended at Surrey Sculpture Prize in June 2018 for her Installation piece 'Incubation Chamber'. The piece was selected to be displayed site specifically at the annual Surrey Sculpture Society exhibition at Landmark Arts Centre, Surrey.
