Marking Time

Arts Space, Wodonga


In approaching landscape as a subject, Jo Davenport considers time as both a fleeting moment and as an expansive infinitum.


Time promises that you may never view the same scene twice. With that in mind, Jo Davenport’s paintings hope to capture landscape in the spontaneous instance when the past is almost gone and the future is just starting to appear. The result is an impulse act of colour and mark making that brings the transient experience into view.
