JO WILMOT
Jo Wilmot is absorbed by luxury and degradation. Through dripping,
melting paint her work depicts the domestic interiors and gardens of
the wealthy.  Her use of paint makes these landscapes and interiors
seem over-ripe, claustrophobic and nauseating.

Wilmot graduated from Goldsmiths MA 2005. She has recently
exhibited in 'Fuck Art Lets Paint' at Transition, and 'Concrete
Allotment' at temporarycontemporary.
