Jo Olive

An artist and multidisciplinary maker from Northern N.S.W Australia. Her work is characterised by an enduring interest in the mapping of place, the fugitive nature of memory and the documentation of her emotional and historical connection to land. Her work favours intuitive mark-making, abstraction and the automatism of line. Largely self-taught, Olive’s work is an intensely personal, cathartic process in which visual elements are simultaneously lost and found through the physicality of scratching, sanding, puncturing, concealing and disclosing. Heavily concerned with process, these works ultimately produce a palimpsest, a recording of time. “As a maker, I am also able to interpret elements of my arts practice into utilitarian objects that transform the everyday, objects such as textiles and letterpress paper-goods.”
