WHAT IS ENOUGH?
Jo Tyler works with soundscape, light, extended layers of print and transparent glass vessels to describe current global states of instability and flux.
Disembodied voices played within this immersive experience give a sense of intimacy with others. Like pillow talk, they offer a moment where we can still our own concerns, and see into another person’s world.
Sometimes the work is sombre, and shadowy; sometimes playful and unexpectedly adventurous, but always it is compelling, hypnotic and passionately rooted in the redemption of human connection.
Jo works to create her blown glass vessel designs with master glass technician, Lawrence West. She then fills these simple transparent vessels with a moving assortment of evocative substances; ice and oil drip onto a bed of red ochre, drawing on the intelligence of the body and inviting us to respond with every cell to pressing environmental concerns.
