Gallery Launch: An Exhibition by Jo Stanford

You Didn't, You Haven't, You Don't and You're Not
by Jo Stanford

Taking the transitory as an expression of the way we live, Jo Stanford explores the everyday ups and downs of living, loving and falling apart through paint and collage. Using Brixton and the current regeneration as a foundation for an investigation into the transitory nature of existence, Stanford experiments with colour and juxtaposition to create tension within the works that act as a metaphor for the transitory nature of our contemporary urban environment.

Through observation and experimentation Stanford attempts to make physical the sense of our uneven lives using colour, shape and form. Exploring the nature of our existence on a local stage Stanford combines abstract painting with figurative elements to create works that make a visceral response to a changing landscape.

Jo Stanford is a local artist in Brixton.
