Jo Barrett

Jo Barrett graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Bath Spa University in 2000. Since then she has made a considerable impact with her thoughtful, beautiful still life paintings. She has had 10 solo shows in the UK, and taken part in group shows in London and New York. Her work has been exhibited at art fairs in London, New York, Glasgow, Frankfurt, Zurich, Toronto, Palm Beach, Hong Kong and Singapore. Jo’s paintings focus on still life, capturing the form, light and atmosphere created by carefully selected objects and the space they inhabit. Her paintings have a contemporary, formal approach to the subject while evoking the palette and atmosphere of the 18th century Dutch still life tradition. She has distilled this influence into minimal and structured arrangements, where folds in the tablecloth and diffused forms in the background play an essential role in the final works. Lighting is key in Barrett’s work. The subtle, shifting tones and colours within interlocking shadows, provide as much substance and compositional structure as the objects themselves. Barrett’s approach to her work, grounded in traditional influences, creates timeless paintings that are simultaneously contemplative and powerful. Jo has exhibited with Quantum since 2015.
