Jo Hamilton is a Portland based, British born artist who’s work uses traditional crocheting to create images of people and places around her. After Studying at the Glasgow school of art in the more conventional mediums of painting and drawing it was not until her move to America that she first began to experiment with crocheting.
The attention to detail, light, shadows and liberal use of colour gives her portraits an almost photographic level of realism. Her cityscapes are perhaps best defined an abstract sprawl utilizing sometimes surreal colours and shapes to give a unique perception of the urban environment the artist finds herself in. Her work will be displayed across several locations in New York starting April 29th.
