Jo Roberts

    Jo Roberts is interested in the minutiae of everyday life and in highlighting the specific. Investigating people, places, things, and their interaction with one another, her work often encompasses journeying, and she records what she discovers. Drawing is the foundation of her practice, and she uses other media when appropriate to describe her findings, which she maps in a variety of ways.

    She calls herself a ‘commentariographer’ (a word last used in 1576): ‘someone who writes, mediates, ponders, portrays or records. One who comments on current events and produces an expository treatise.’
