Jo Hollier
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Jo Hollier is an Australian artist who has traveled extensively through Thailand and Japan, collecting personal stories and memories. Her work addresses the issues of nostalgia and displacement and reflects a fascination for different cultures and way of life.

 

Jo's exquisite etchings are made on copper plate. One picture is often made up of multiple plates. She enjoys the unexpected results achieved by intermixing of colours on the paper. Jo sometimes mixes colour on the plate by a method known as 'a la poupee'.

 

Her editions are small and they reflect a sensitivity for the art of etching producing a delicate imagery with emotional undertones. Jo lives and works in Canberra, Australia.
