The work of Jo van Gemerde (Amsterdam) takes you to a magical world. The world of virtual Goddesses. The woman in her work do not exist in real life: they are compositions of several women. Jo uses flowers, plants and animals to make her story come alive. Combined with feathers, armory, horns, wood and stones.Anything she needs to transform her models into mysterious, combative and tender goddesses. Jo is fascinated by the combination of strength and fragility.
Jo van Gemerde had exhibitions in Dutch Design Hotel Artemis and a retrospective in The Fashion Hotel in Amsterdam. Her work was highlighted in a blog of The Arts Business Institute. She won a fifth prize in the American Art Awards Category Digital.
