Ever curious about the human condition, Jo Dyer initially studied psychology at university. She dropped this major to pursue a more creative approach to understanding human behaviour through art making. Since graduating, Dyer has taken part in a number of solo and group exhibitions and has been involved in various projects through city revitalisation initiative Renew Newcastle. Jo continues to refine her approach to producing work that is deliberately emotive, combining expressive layers of colour with delicate line work to render her subjects like portals into their own emotional landscapes. Seeing beauty in vulnerability, she aims to illuminate experiences and emotions that are often avoided or denied, believing that acknowledgement is a powerful catalyst for transformation.
