Jo Berry

Lives and works in Cardiff, UK

Jo Berry often works with images either cut from newspapers or taken with a mobile phone camera, coloured copied or re-photographed. Painted with an airbrush, the paintings become distanced from the original image suggesting an alternative meaning or exaggerating an element of the original, a blurring of both the image and the meaning.

Berry’s paintings have a dreamy or unreal quality coming from the sense of time slowed down. Due to their subject matter’s origin, there is a small sense of recognition resulting in a feeling of dislocation.

Recent shows include Surface Gallery, Nottingham and new work for the Braintree Art Trail. Jo Berry lives and works in Cardiff
