Personal statement

Jo Holdsworth paints contemporary figures and cityscapes as well as modern landscapes. Often centred around the theme of transitional spaces, Jo’s paintings include striking figures within urban environments, inspired by the cityscapes of London in which she lives. Jo has exhibited widely in solo and group shows and regularly undertakes commissions. Her paintings have been at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead, La Galleria Pall Mall, the 508 Gallery in Chelsea and the Menier Gallery this year. Jo has also recently become joint winner of the Royal Arts Prize Visitors’ Choice Award 2019.

Artistic Statement

“Her work evokes, with uncanny semblance, the comings and goings of everyday life. With seemingly effortless brush strokes and a limited colour palette, she crafts an artistic window into quintessentially British scenes”.
Arts & Collections

“She is a painter with a keen eye for colour and an almost cinematic appeal. The paintings are panoramic and range from striking figure paintings to modern landscapes, all painted in subtle hues”.
Culture Vulture arts review

“The figures in her work, elongated and striking, dominate her oil on canvas paintings as recurrent leitmotifs. Faceless and eerie, they are denied identity. But this anonymity means each one of them could be any one of us, adding to the undeniably potent imagery of Jo’s work”.
Arts & Collections

“Jo’s paintings of figures have a particular visual richness and spontaneity”.
