Jo Gorner

University, Jo was taught printmaking by Jean Lodge, who studied with S W Hayter at Atelier 17, Paris and who was inspirational in her rigorous approach and experimentation. Jo went on to complete an MA in print at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Printmaking is central to Jo’s practice, though it does not dominate the narrative or dictate the expression. The relief and etching techniques Jo Gorner uses allow space and time to consider an image facilitating the passage from thought to paper.

The quality of the marks Jo achieves, the presence of the hand and incidence of chance, are all integral to her work.

The restorative value of the creative process and the impact of the natural landscape both underpin Jo’s practice. The artwork which results is a sensory, embodied, response to this immersion in the natural environment and her relational encounter with a landscape.

Jo Gorner

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
