Shape of Thought | Jo Dyer
In her own words, Dyer appreciates “how connecting with the natural world through observation slows my stream of consciousness, allowing greater space between my thoughts and an increased awareness of their presence. This is never attained for long. I constantly fuse with my mind’s ceaseless content, getting caught up in all it’s “blah”. All that I observe and experience in this world is affected by my mind’s relentless narration, but acknowledging this in my art practice reminds me not to take it too seriously.”
Jo Dyer is an artist born in Port Fairy, Victoria and based in Newcastle, New South Wales. Dyer studied psychology at university before dropping the major to pursue a more experiential approach to understanding human behaviour through art. Since graduating she has taken part in a number of solo and group exhibitions and been involved with various projects through city revitalisation initiative Renew Newcastle.
