Jo Carroll is an intuitive abstract artist whose work can be described as calming, meditative, elegant and contemporary. She comes from a diverse background with a successful career in global advertising agencies, as well as running her own businesses. In 2016, Jo decided to get serious about painting, she focused her energy on creating pieces for her first solo exhibition named Reflections. “Like most of my work, the collection featured elements of water and nature. It feels very spiritual.”
Jo has since had her work exhibited in acclaimed Melbourne galleries and her work can be found in many private collections in Australia and overseas.
Jo has found her series of blue paintings to be the most popular with her audience. “There’s something special about the colour blue. It represents peace as well as healing and creativity. Deep blue or indigo in particular is excellent for meditation. The colour represents a high level of spirituality, integrity and deep sincerity.”
She believes these ‘deep feelings’ are one of the many reasons her art attracts plenty of attention. The paintings can be viewed in a deep and complex manner. “People see all sorts of things within my art. This is usually something that is special to each individual,” explains Jo. “Whilst my creations share certain elements as part of a body of work, each piece is unique. I’m telling a new story every time I paint one.”
“I would describe myself as an Abstract Expressionist,” says Jo. “That’s due to the randomness and spontaneity of my work. However, at times my art borders on Impressionism. My paintings are rarely planned or created with conscious effort. I love the freedom of starting from nothing and turning it into a creation that leaves a powerful impression on the viewer.”
