Albury based artist Jo Davenport’s lyrical oil paintings inhabit the liminal resting place between real, imagined and remembered landscapes. For the artist, the notion of space is not defined by perspectival strictures and physical form, but conceived as a scintillating constellation of memories and emotions.
Davenport has completed extensive studies including a Master of Fine Arts and a Postgraduate Diploma of Visual Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, and an Advanced Diploma in Fine Arts, Riverina Institute. She was the recipient of the Chippendale World Art Residency (2017) and Artist in Residence at Hill End, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (2015). Davenport has also been a finalist in a number of prestigious awards including the Paddington Art Prize (2017), Tattersalls Landscape Art Prize (2013), R&M McGivern Award (2012), Langridge Painting Award (2011), Shelmedine Acquisitive Art Award (2010), Alliance Francaise Award (2010) and Pigment Gallery Award (2010) at the Victorian College of the Arts. Her work is held in many important collections including Artbank, University of Melbourne, Norman Foster Club House Tai Po, Hong Kong, Wangaratta Regional Art Gallery and ArtStream Investment Group, as well as private collections in Australia, UK, France, Canada and Japan.
Jo Davenport has chosen to donate 100% of the proceeds from this work to the NSW RSF - Firefighter Samuel McPaul Family.
Volunteer firefighter Samuel McPaul, a member of Morven Rural Fire Brigade, was tragically killed while on duty at the Green Valley fireground east of Albury NSW. Samuel leaves behind a loving wife, Megan, who is pregnant with their first child, due in May. The NSW RFS has created a dedicated bank account to collect donations. All funds received will be distributed to Samuel’s wife, Megan, to provide for their baby’s future.
