Keeping Everything Together OK

Artist Jo Wood is a printmaker working in intaglio, relief and screen printing techniques. “Keeping Everything Together OK” is one of a recent series of relief monoprints, collaged with hand coloured papers. “Life is short. The world is so troubled. This monoprint on paper represents perhaps how most of us try to keep functioning , try to keep everything together despite the upheavals, the suffering and drama everywhere. We try to keep our lives ordered, with strong connections and purpose. Our brain is alert and firing. Our relationships and work are ok and for me personally, and preciously, creativity is present. It is hectic and busy on many levels. When we lose some or all of these things, things can quickly fall apart.
