Jo Dalgety

The markers that people leave within the landscape, and the markers or memories that landscape leaves in people is at the core of Jo Dalgety’s paintings.

Jo Dalgety paints with layers of paper, literally and metaphorically, referencing the evolution of life as layers build upon layers in the landscape. As people and generations, we have those layers built within us as well.

These layers represent our things, our memories, our history, all melting into the land and leaving marks. Underpinning her work is the hope or belief in nature, that the cycle of life will continue, and heal. That spring comes after winter.
