Jo Howe

Jo Howe is well known for her carefully constructed sculptural objects “I select materials by considering the aesthetic quality of text and relevance of the book’s title, working with old manuscripts that bear the physical imperfections and aromas of past human handling and thus retain their human presence.” She adds “ By resisting meaning in purely linguistic terms I invite the reader to respond at an intuitive and emotional level.” Jo’s work is held in collections around the world.
