Shape of Thought – Jo Dyer

Exhibition and Shows

9 Feb 2019 to 16 Feb 2019

New South Wales-based artist Jo Dyer will be bringing her multi-layered and expressive practice to fortyfivedownstairs in February 2019.

Her exhibition Shape of Thought will feature paintings and sculptures that are as much about media and process as they are about evoking an interconnectedness between her inner and outer worlds.

Dyer’s practice is informed by processes of introspection and observation, and a particular interest in exploring inner and outer worlds and how they shape each other. With an interest in psychology and a tendency to think a lot about the nature of thinking, Dyer observes and documents the dynamic between her thoughts and perception of her surroundings.

In her own words, Dyer appreciates how connecting with the natural world through observation slows my stream of consciousness, allowing greater space between my thoughts and an increased awareness of their presence. This is never attained for long. I constantly fuse with my mind’s ceaseless content, getting caught up in all it’s “blah”. All that I observe and experience in this world is affected by my mind’s relentless narration, but acknowledging this in my art practice reminds me not to take it too seriously.”
