Jo Roszkowski works in a variety of media including ceramics, textiles, encaustic, mixed media and painting. All of her creative output is inspired by the forms, colours and textures of nature, in particular the unseen layers and the minute, ephemeral details that form the greater whole. Roszkowski observes the botanical specimens drawing on both the subtle and robust qualities of individual leaves, flowers and trees. The ongoing engagement with these elements and the immediacy of the techniques evokes the changing nature of the natural world while providing homage to the fleeting elements of seasonal and generational change. At this time of global crisis there is also evidence of a conversation going on between the land and humanity.
