"Only artists who surrender to the paint’s sovereignty can become liberated from it. If the brush, the palette and the myriad colours are Jo Davenport’s hardest task-masters, then she has also made them her allies. Time and uncertainty are the defining principles of this artist’s work. These are ideas informed by her experience of bush life in the valley at Splitters Creek, outside Albury, NSW. Here, the temporal and random elements of nature exist without the necessity of human witness. Davenport has made this idyll her home and studio. The sensual elements of the chatter of birds, the still reflections on the lagoon, the smell of pending rain or the heat of the midday sun create an ecology for thought and creativity." - Prue Gibson
