From the Artist
In site-specific exhibitions, public art commissions, and collaborative projects I use varied combinations of glass, waxed surfaces, found objects, and experimental analog photography to investigate the way we perceive objects and images through our senses. These predominately translucent materials function as both a physical framework and symbolic membrane with implications of scale and the integration of architecture as pivotal components. The transmission of photographically derived images and images formed through optical phenomena are primary elements and are manifested through projection, reflection, and refraction.

Jo Yarrington's print Moving Day is down to earth in its subject matter and presentation. The bold, chaotic black lines of her print suggest figures in an earth-colored box with a black triangle that symbolizes a house. This structure could represent a house that is either being moved from or moved into. This ambiguity only adds to the visual movement within the print. The use of richly textured black, produced by multiple printings, separates the black figures in motion from the black lines. Yarrington's economic use of these lines, combined with layering black on the figures, provides this print with its visual energy.
