Jo Naden, ‘Circle Round’

'Circle Round' The phenomena and processes of the natural world, in particular water, sit at the heart of Jo Naden’s sculpture. Early in her practice explorations of water/land boundaries were expressed in triangles and lines installed on beaches. Now however Naden’s love of making form has become evident in her distilled sculptures, where the geometry of plane is all-important. Naden draws together small contemplative works of meditative abstraction, juxtaposed with larger dynamic forms referencing ancient cultures, and their attendance to time and tide. Materials of glass and bronze evoke a sense of ether and matter, within the sands of cyclical time.
